On this day the island was discovered in 1499 by the Spaniard Alonso de Ojeda. Dia di Boneiru (flag day) is a public holiday and is extensively celebrated. Keep in mind that many businesses and stores are closed.
The island may be small, but there is plenty of choice in good food on Bonaire. Recently a new restaurant has been added with a unique concept and the only one on Bonaire: Chefs Bonaire.
A vacation to Bonaire, how wonderful does that sound? KLM and Tui regularly have great offers, which means that a vacation to our tropical island can become a reality sooner than you think. And where Bonaire is often first thought of sun, sea and beach, the island has so much more to offer. Belonging to the Leeward Islands in the Caribbean, Bonaire is one and a half times as large as Texel.
Did you know that the oldest building in Bonaire is 380 years old and is in Kralendijk? If you want to see architecture during your vacation on Bonaire, Playa (the center of Kralendijk) is a good place to start. In this way you get a picture of the former colonial era and the stories that the buildings carry with them.
The hidden beach of Cai between the mangroves of Lac Bay is an oasis of tranquility and is located in the east of the island. Here you can spot different species of birds or, with a little luck, even a turtle, which occasionally shows its head above water. The dirt road to it can be very bumpy, but it is more than worth the drive. Before you reach Cai you will pass the mangrove, where large groups of flamingos are regularly to be found. The flamingos are usually not far from the road, so you can admire these magnificent animals from very close by.
A number of banks issue new debit cards with VPay instead of Maestro
Vpay is the counterpart of Maestro. Where maestro is a development of Mastercard, VPay is a development of Visa. Both are very widely supported worldwide and within Europe you can go almost anywhere with both, unfortunately VPay does not work on Bonaire and therefore you cannot withdraw cash or withdraw money at the payment machine !!
By necessity, Aletta, who participated in the Farmer Seek Woman program in 2013, has opened her farm to paying guests. Running a goat farm on Bonaire is not easy Selling goat cheese, self-sufficient life: that was her dream. But by necessity, she has now abandoned her original business model. You can't make it with goat cheese here, she says as she makes coffee with fresh goat milk in her outdoor kitchen ("Kabriccino", she chuckles. "My specialty. Kabritu is Papiamento for goat"). ,, On Bonaire nothing can be taken for granted.
In the south of Bonaire towards the salt pans and next to the Esmeralda ruins it is an oasis of pure tranquility on Kings Beach. Ocean Oasis is the newest Beachclub on Bonaire. With a fantastic architecture, a completely new Beach Club has been built there. You can rent a bamboo lounger with towel, a bottle of water and a fruity salad for $ 22.50. The smile of the Beach Boys and the best view of the Caribbean Sea are free.
