Charming Kralendijk is the capital of the Dutch island of Bonaire. The pace is slow and easy-going here, with an emphasis on sunset snapping and people watching from quaint cafes. Start your explorations in the walkable downtown area, home to a generous smattering of restaurants and shops – the main street is called Kaya Grandi, which is also home to striking colonial buildings. Next on Kralendijk cruises, head out to one of the many beaches in the area. Don’t miss Lac Bay – shallow waters and gentle breezes make it the perfect place for trying out windsurfing. Sorobon Beach is another popular spot, and with its idyllic white sands it’s as photogenic as it is peaceful. Just off the coast of Bonaire, you’ll find the Bonaire National Marine Park, which was first established back in 1979. Its home to extraordinary coral reefs and a wide variety of marine life, including over 340 species of fish. Experience it all by diving into the depths or scuba diving near the surface. On the west side of the park you’ll find Klein Bonaire Island, a secluded islet which is also a wildlife sanctuary, home to rare birds as well as nesting sea turtles. Remember to bring your camera.
