I recommend Bari Reef, especially if you are staying at Sand Dollar--this is their house reef. We enjoyed our snorkels and dives....if you are good with your air, you can enter at the north end of Sand Dollar and exit at the Aquarium (great snorkel spot at the end of the broken pier just south of Bonaire Dive and Adventure)...

I am new scuba diver and I thought the water was warm, clear that day and huge amount of fish to watch.

This was one of the best snorkel sites we found (didn't see them all...) with healthy growing coral and a myriad of fish. Easy parking and entry. Remember to look under the jetty for octopi.

Probably one of the two best dives on Bonaire, especially great for night dives. We stay at Sand Dollar, which is right on Bari Reef, so it all works perfectly!

Dive site is a good location and close to town. Plenty of parking. Reef wall is close to shore and currents are very mild.

We looked a bit and passed up this reef twice! Once we found it through the round about we dove right in. It has very easy access right among the resorts. It was almost like a wall in the drop off. We dove it in the late afternoon and did not have problems with the current. I saw a lot... More

We're experienced divers but appreciate the ease of entry-exit and beautiful creatures on this dive. Typically see turtles here. Occasionally and frog fish or two. The site of the old Sunset Resort that was destroyed by a tropical storm. Enter on the old beach and drop to 65 ft, go north for 30-45 minuets and let the gentle current return... More
