Beautiful reef - awesome things to see. Amazing place to scuba dive - we also did a night dive while there - saw lobsters, octopus, eels - so many amazing underwater sights.

I've been diving here for 20 years now, and the reef still looks great. You would think a reef right out the back door of a big condo rental facility would be beat up, but it is still looking great.

What makes this place special is the whome reef comes alive just before sunset, morays, lionfish (will probably be on someones plate before too long) , trunkfish, and shoals that appear oblivious of divers, the list is endless and once dived you will knkw this is one of those that will be dived again before you leave Bonaire

Rocky entry can be a little rough getting in here if there are small waves during your dive. Easy large parking lot and nice place to swim and picnic.

It was so easy to enter and exit. Not sure how convenient for those that aren't staying at Sand Dollar Condos.

This was one of our favored dive sites on the trip. Easy to get to and the marine life at 30-50 feet was spectacular. Would certainly put this on the list of dives to make while in Bonaire.

We snorkelled here twice on our week in Bonaire and each time was specacular for the amount of fish and sea life. It is an easy walk in and a beautiful easy snorkel. We also did out first ever dive here and so it will be forever etched on our memories. There are so many great spots on Bonaire but... More

You can't beat Bari Reef for diversity and ease of entry. Walk right in from the Sand Dollar beach, set your compass & away you go. It's such an easy dive, but you can see so much. I can absolutely understand why this is voted the best reef in the Caribbean!

We consistently find great subjects for macro on Bari and consistently find frogfish, sometimes with the help of the folks at Bonaire Dive and Adventure (the best access to Bari). The vast number of species identified on Bari is well documented. There is some concrete rubble in shallow water to the south of the dock (dubbed the 'aquarium') where small... More
