Beautiful isolated Island. Regular water taxis bringing people from the mainland but it still managed to remain peaceful. Great drift snorkelling although slightly tricky maneuvering from beach to deeper water due to coral, would advise wearing reef shoes.Huge variety of fish to see though so def worth it. We saw so many sand crabs on the beach, they kept our... More

No name beach can't be beat!!! You want wildlife? Check out the hermit crabs that live here, the ghost crabs, the fish, etc. the snorkeling can't be beat. There are no facilities here so plan accordingly. The kids had an absolutely fantastic time having the hermit crabs race and spotting ghost crabs. We took a nature walk around and there... More

Although the reef is visibly damaged and has a lot of human pressures the amount and variety of fish and sea creatures we saw more than made up for this. We could not help but feel sad at times imagining what the reef must have been like years ago. Maybe less visitors and less pressure would help the reef to... More

If want an natural, unspoiled place to swim and snorkel, this is it! Its a short boat ride from the cruise pier but a world of difference. Having already been to Aruba and Grand Cayman and seen the high rise beach condos and the jet skis, this was the quiet beach we needed to go to. Take a water taxi... More

I can't say this enough.....if you are a snorkeler take the water taxi over by Karls restaurant...easy, and come more often to pick up and drop off. As you first take off from no name beach be prepared to be a part of the aquarium. We went back twice to make sure of everything we saw....from lion fish, barracuda, cuddle... More

The best snorkeling of my life. Breathtaking views of fish and coral. No need to scuba. Hope to do it again soon.

We book our snorkeling trip thru our cruise ship (Royal Princess). We went on the Siamese Junk Cruise to this lovely nature preserved island. Many turtles come here to lay eggs. When you snorkel you will see them. Coral reefs that are amazing and brightly colored fish. Do not remove the shells or colored glass, but rather enjoy the beauty... More

Kleine Bonaire has some of the best, most private, coral sand beaches anywhere in the world. And great snorkeling. You can see turtles in the warm shallows, or swim out over the drop-off through openings in the elkhorn coral for a peek into the deep and amazing marine life! Get there by kayak (18 minutes over and 44 minutes back)... More

Our group of friends stayed nearly 2-1/2 weeks at the El Pueblo Villa #3 in Bonaire in January 2015. Some great pictures of the villa and things we did: scuba dive, kite surfing, sailing, shopping, and eating out. The management provided us a ride to the rental car place fro airport, then went to the villa where we were shown... More
