This dive site is located on the north coast of Klein Bonaire and is great for snorkelers and novice divers. You can also make great pictures here.
The plateau is shallow and not wide, but you will find a lot of beautiful corals and many reef fish, snails and flamingo tongue shells. The buoy is at 20 feet, just before the drop off. You’ll almost always spot two seahorses here.
At 23 feet depth a long reef wall starts with a number of perpendicular spots, which extends up to 148 feet. Everywhere on this wall you will find lots of coral. The best depth is up to 52 feet, here are the largest coral formations and most sponges.
Do you want to visit Leonora’s Reef? 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.
