This is the place where you take the water taxi to Klein Bonaire. My wife and son left something in the cabin of our cruise ship. Dock is about a 10-minute walk along the water front. Very easy to get too.

This is a nice spot to sit and take in the sights, especially after an evening meal. Watching the locals and life drift by.

You won't believe the number of critters in the water along the town pier. We've snorkeled there over the last 20 years and are always rewarded with a wide range of fish, moray eels, rays, squid, etc. Always a treat.

The Town Pier in Bonaire is a great place to stroll before or after dinner, and when the cruise ship is docked here during the day, the whole area is filled with the local vendors selling their wares and goodies to the eager cruise ship...More

You have to have a special pass from the local government (harbor master) in order to dive near the pier. AND you can't dive there if a cruise ship is in the berth. The Queen Mary was there the last time we were there. We...More
