He took us by the airport, which looks like a pink flamingo, past various beaches to the salt marshes and the towers of... More

It is fascinating to look at the massive mounds of salt and learn about how the process works. The crystalizing ponds are an unusual pink color, adding to their intrigue.

The pekelmeer is an historical part of Bonaire with a very nice view. While enjoying the salt hills, salt foam, the pink colored water at one side, there is a beatiful beach at the other side. Divers can enjoy nice views of the under water world.

A cool thing to see while driving around the southern tip of Bonaire! Bought both bath salts and cooking salt from a store in town- very affordable and high quality!

If you're in Bonaire, and looking to see stuff, this is worth a look. Whether on a tour or by taxi, it's interesting to see another side of Bonaire. Taxi drivers do tours of Bonaire and will take you wherever you want to go on the island for a set hourly rate. If you're touring the south side of the... More

Saly flats, salt mountains, pink lakes, and of course lots of sunshine. Also some most interesting former slave quarters. A must when in Bonaire.

we were driving to pink sand beach and other snorkeling and came across the salt mountains we had read about . it's very close to the some snorkeling places and the slave huts. We came during rainy season and snorkeled in the light rain .. the snorkeling was good.

You can see from a distance the saltmountains but around you have the lake in pink and blue. Amazing view ! The drive in the south of the island is great and you can see the difference between the see on both sides of the island.
