This dive site is like the Southwest Corner and is one of few places with the most black coral at Klein Bonaire. It was damaged by Hurricane Lenny in 1999 and as a consequence you won’t find large formations of elkhorn coral and staghorn coral.
You can snorkel perfectly here because of the large shallow plateau and night diving is wonderful as well: you will see feather stars completely unwind. The buoy is anchored at 20 feet. The shallow plateau runs up to 147 feet from the shore.
Many soft corals grow here and you will find many reef fish, perfect to make stunning pictures. Especially the western plateau is overgrown with soft corals. The drop off is 39 feet deep and descends gradually to 115 feet. Up to 49 feet you will find lots of soft coral, most fish are swimming here. In the deepest part of the reef, below 82 feet, you will find black coral.
Do you want to visit Sharon’s Serenity? In Bonaire Dive Guide you can find more information and detailed directions. Convenient, as many dive sites on the north coast are off road and hard to find. The guide is also practical as a reference and safe: leaving your mobile phone in the car during a dive is not wise.
