The blue waters and shopping paradise of Kralendijk, Bonaire

Bonaire is a small Caribbean island of the Dutch Antilles with less than 15.000 residents. From the ships we have excellent views of the bay, the clear blue waters and the little houses of the capital. The sailing boats lie at anchor in the bay, to reach the beach you have to take a water taxi or swim. The street behind the beach promenade is a shopping paradise. We also liked the fort tower and mural.

Bonaire is een klein Caribisch eiland van de Nederlandse Antillen en heeft minder als 15.000 inwoners. Van op het schip hebben we een fantastisch zicht op het helder blauwe water van de baai en kleine huisjes van de hoofdstad. Zeilbootjes liggen voor anker in de baai, om het strand te bereiken heb je een watertaxi nodig of is zwemmen de boodschap. De straat achter het strand is een waar winkelparadijs. We hielden ook wel van het fort met zijn toren en de muurschilderingen..
