Resort Description

Delfins Beach Resort Bonaire is located on a 200m long stretch of coastline in south-western Bonaire. 

Turtles, shrimp, blue spotted eagle rays, frog fish, octopus and many more creatures are regularly spotted on the resort's house reef. The clear warm waters are easily accessible from the shoreline in front of the resort. 

The white-washed apartments are situated directly on a white sand beach. Each has access to sunloungers and the largest pool on the island, which is also a wellness mineral pool.

Enjoy breakfast, lunch and dinner at the open-air restaurant or have a drink at the pool bar with a palm leaf canopy. 

Sustainable use of materials, environment-oriented applications, and efficient construction methods were employed in the recent construction of the resort. 


 

Explore diving around the Delfins Beach Resort

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.
