Welcome Bonaire 

Bonaire is a Dutch island in the Leeward Antilles in the Caribbean Sea. Its capital is the port of Kralendijk, on the west (leeward) coast of the island. Aruba, Bonaire and Curaçao form the ABC islands, 80 km (50 miles) off the coast of Venezuela. Unlike much of the Caribbean region, the ABC islands lie outside Hurricane Alley. The islands have an arid climate that attracts visitors seeking warm, sunny weather all year round. Bonaire is a popular snorkeling and scuba diving destination because of its multiple shore diving sites and easy access to the island’s fringing reefs.
The name ‘Bonaire’ is thought to be derived from the Caquetio word ‘Bonay’, meaning ‘low country’. The early Spanish and Dutch modified its spelling to Bojnaj and also Bonaire. French influence, while present at various times, was never strong enough to make the assumption that the name means ‘good air’.According to another theory, the name might be derived from the Spanish phrase “buen aire”, which does mean ‘good air’, as the Spanish were the first Europeans to colonise the island.

Bonaire is 288 km2 (111 sq mi).
