Nice drive to see a few flamingos. Take the road to the left when you leave the car park overlooking the lake. This road takes you in a loop along the lake shore for a little more sightseeing. After this head out to the Indian insciption caves

Really an awesome place! Just you and the nature. I rented a scooter to drive around the Lake, that was perfect. Had a great time!

If you want to see flamingoes up close and personal, this is the place to go. You'll need a car to drive around this beautiful lake. There are islands in the lake, mangroves but no swimming allowed.

Lake Goto its a unique environment in Bonaire. In January of 2015 the Flamingos return 5 years before the explosion in BOPEC. The view its amazing and from there you can see the Seru Brandaris (the highest place in Bonaire). In September 2015 STINAPA finish to rebuild a fence using old dead cactus in the south part of the lake... More

When we were there, there were flamingos. They are shy, so there is no use in getting out of the car because they will fly away.

I drove by here on my drive around the island. It's kind of cool in the sense that it's a lake with flamingos on a desert island with cactus in the lake. Other than they I wasn't super impressed but if you drive around the whole island pass by it.

We drove by, slowly, and there were dozens upon dozens of pink flamingos, sometimes very close to the shore. And just after the lake, a wild donkey in the middle of the road. Beautiful sight

We visited lake Gotomeer and the flamingo sanctuary as part of an island tour. The flamingos are very shy and easily frightened so we did not get off of the bus but just drove slowly and stopped at various intervals. There were a large number of flamingos easily seen at various distances across the lakes but several were quite close... More

Bonaire is not known for it's natural beauty, except for diving, and, we have discovered, Lake Gotomeer. Beautiful overlooks from the road; fabulous spot for memorable pictures.
