A nice little spot showing some of the island's past history right along the sea across from the salt ponds. Plenty of space to pull up and park by either car, motor coach or golf cart.

Well preserved, a visit to these slave huts is a must see to understand Bonaire's past. It is along the way as you drive south toward the Salt Pans (another must see) and work your way toward the kite surfers and wind surfers beaches.

We stopped off to look around as part of an island tour witHerberdt taxi. Such small houses with such a sad history, poor people who would have to live in such a small house. A beautiful beach to see too

We were amazed but the remaining slave huts at Witte Pan just down the road from the salt production on Bonaire. Slaves lived in the huts while working the salt production on the island. Many slept in the tiny huts which amazed us. You can...More
