This is the house reef for our last trip to Bonaire. We enjoyed many shore dives here day and night and we were never disappointed. Great site with lots of cool critters including frogfish and nudibranchs. Don't miss this site if you visit

This was our favorite reef because of all the marine life. We just kept coming back to this one over and over again.

I hesitate to recommend this reef, since I don't want you to go there and spoil it. That being off my chest, this is the reef on Bonaire that has the most variety of fish anywhere. We see clouds of blue tangs, angels, and my favorite Royal angels, squid, octopi, morays, spotted sharp tailed eels, flounder, turtles, and many others.... More

EASY entry. Park and it is a short walk to the water. There was a current, so be careful as you head out. There is a private pier attached to the hotel, but you can easily enter & exit from the beach. Lots of fish and easy dive.

ON Bari reef you can see all there is to see on Bonaire in one dive site. The one problem is that you have to get permission to dive there from the property

We descended to find a feeding hawksbill turtle and three queen angelfish. The rest of the dive was relaxing with lots to see. This was the last dive of the day and the ease of entry was definitely welcome.

Easy access to the water. Better for divers than snorkelers but plenty to see if you stay around the old pier.
