Just off the western shore of Bonaire, tucked into the crook of the main island’s natural crescent shape, sits the islet Klein Bonaire. The uninhabited, low-lying island is about 1,500 acres big and only rises about 6 feet out of the water. On land, Klein Bonaire is home to a handful of ruins, small slave huts dating from the colonial era, and the island has a wonderfully deserted beach called No Name Beach. However, Klein Bonaire's greatest attraction lies just below the water. As part of Bonaire’s famed marine park, the shallow reefs around the island are lush and pristine, loaded with frilly soft corals, and teeming with schools of reef fish.
The only way to visit Klein Bonaire is by boat. Most of Bonaire’s dive operators offers diving and snorkeling trips to the island, and it’s also possible to hire a water taxi or charter boat to explore on land.
