“Apparently the No 1 site in the Caribbean for different species”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 7, 2012

We snorkelled from the reef to the Eden hotel one morning. When we first got in the water I was a little disappointed. However within a few minutes I realised if we kept really close to the shore and it was amaaaazing. We saw dozens and dozens of different species. A great snorkelling site

“Excellent house reef at Sand Dollar or Dan Laman”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 29, 2012

If you are staying at Sand Dollar or Dan Laman condominiums just jump from a pier and take a short swim to a beautiful Bari reef.

“below average for snorkeling”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2012

We did not find much for shalow reef (snorkeling)
There is an old concrete dock to the right which held lots of fish and some interesting growth
Easy entry

“Bari Reef is a great dive!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 27, 2012

We stayed at the Sand Dollar and thus did several dives at Bari, including a 6 AM dawn dive. Each one was unique in its own way. Saw several spotted eels and some great fish! Plus the entry off the dock is super-easy and no swim compared to other Bonaire sites.
