Bonaire’s greatest asset is the nearly continuous coral reef that in many places begins only yards from shore. Bonaire’s dive sites are marked by yellow stones on the coastal road along the leeward coast. All you have to do is find one, pull off the road and wade in. As great as the shore diving is, you’re not limited to it. You can take a boat to many of the sites or to uninhabited Klein Bonaire (both islands fall under the protection of the Bonaire National Marine Park) for the perfect diving holidays. These qualities earned Bonaire a tie with Cayman Islands for Best Destination Overall — as well as No. 1 rankings in Best Shore Diving (for the 19th consecutive year), Marine Life, Macro, Snorkeling and Value — in this year’s Top 100.
