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

Bari has an incredible abundance of life and really pretty coral, too. We saw so many things here and I just love the seascape. It’s just a great great dive with lots to see. We particularly liked the 5:30pm dive time which we did almost daily because although viz was less than earlier in the day, the life was just... More
