Explore diving around the Caribbean Club Bonaire

Resort Description

Caribbean Club Bonaire offers one and two bedroom cottages overlooking the turquoise ocean or the beautiful lush garden. 

Bonaire’s top dive sites are just a few minutes drive away. While diving on Bonaire's coral reefs, you may spot a turtle, dolphin, ray or macro creatures like seahorses, blennies and shrimp. 

The resort has two swimming pools, car and bicycle rental, a restaurant and bar. Each apartment boasts a private terrace or balcony, air conditioned bedrooms and a small kitchenette.  

Hiking, mountain biking, cave exploration, snorkeling, kayaking, and trips to the Washington-Slagbaai National Park or the Goto Meer (Lake Goto) are just a few of the activities to explore while staying at Caribbean Club Bonaire.

What to see

Some of the most memorable creatures you can find on Bonaire are hawksbill, loggerhead and green turtles. Getting a closer look, you may be fortunate enough to spot a seahorse camouflaged in the reefs. Angelfish, tangs, sergeant majors, creole wrasse and butterfly fish also make the reef home. The fire corals, tube sponges and giant sea anemones that cling to the rocks are a surprising sight. Remember to look and not touch! Although Bonaire is not known for bigger fish, you might see some near the wrecks. Large tarpon, barracuda and several, good-sized groupers make their homes in the sunken structures.
