Parking is along the main road, with several access trails. Obviously a nice place to spend the afternoon, and even watch the sun set! You'll find plenty of sandy channels to make your entry.

New site for us that has been placed on our 'return to' list. We dove this site on a day when the wind was from the south, making the waves much rougher than normal (breaking shoulder high on exit); several numeric scores reflect this but we still enjoyed the site. We entered at the yellow road gate north of the mooring. The reef slopes steeply and has good coral cover; sponges and big sea rods go all the way down the slope. Very fishy, including 2 spotted moray eels and a school of small barracuda.

My first trip Bonaire. Amazing. Did shore dives at 23 different sites. Super easy entry but the surface swim is a bit long. It is much better dive in the south direction ... it just keeps getting better and better the more south you get. I saw a large green moray eel in some fairly open and visible coral at 77ft. Also saw some small tuna feeding, which is an very neat sight because of their speed and acceleration. I would definitely do this dive multiple times instead of Tori's on a return trip.

Perhaps the easiest entry on the island. Minimal current, but a bit of a kick out to the reef. Saw our only lobster of the trip on this dive. Good dive with lots of coral and fish.

Made 2 dives at the south end of the picnic area. Good place to park. Walked tide pools at shoreline and found lots of creatures. Long swim to drop-off. One dive had a strong current, next day current was '0'. Saw lots of tropicals, sea turtles, sea horse. We found 2 old bottles and some pottery shards.

This beach is located across from some pink colored salt ponds and is a very pretty, sandy beach that would be great for sunning. A longer swim across a sandy bottom to get to the drop off than at other sites slightly more north of here like Angel City. Easy entry, maybe the easiest all week and with decent viz but we did have a slight current here, nothing to worry about. Saw lots of the usual with the highlight being a spotted eagle ray. Yet another easy Bonaire shore dive!

Good dive. First, on a sandy bottom, I saw a stingray. Reef is rich of fish. Saw a clam shell and played with some eight puffer fishes.

My wife and I did this snorkel as part of a group tour. The small bay was a little crowded, but there were more fish where the little channel came in. I did see a trumpet fish in the middle of a school of Atlantic blue tang. The trumpet fish had changed his color to blue to match. Very unusual. Love2snorkel

Very easy entry and a long shelf that has a good deal of fish activity before you get a healthy reef with a lot of fish and other life. This was our easiest dive, and one of the best.

Nice beach next to road. Light pink sand made up of the white and red coral in shallows near the beach. Easy, short swim out to reef. There are two reefs running parallel to the beach. One starts about 40' down and goes to about 100' then there is a sandy valley bottom between reefs. 30' swim over and a second reef running parallel to first reef and starting at about 60' at top of reef and going down to well below 130' diving limit. Lots to see including healthy reef, plant life and tropical fish. Good visibility 100' or so and little or no current. Easy navigation, just swim along the reef and return to where you started to swim back to shore. Lots to see in shallows on swim out and back.

Pre-Lenny. Pink beach was still there. There were lots of sea fans and soft corals...an easy, enjoyable dive.

The shallow's got wiped out by the wave's from the hurricane. This made the long ( by Bonaire standards) surface swim more enjoyable. This dive can have almost no current, or a fairly strong current. Plan for a possible drift dive. Below 30' the reef shows no sign of damage.
