This is a place with a beautiful beach, unfortunately discovered by kite surfers who infest the surface at high speed. It’s very nice, but diving is often discouraged as to the kite surfers. Are you going to dive anyway, make sure you do so before ten o’clock in the morning and be careful! At this dive site a strong current can develop as well, keep that in mind!
You can best enter the water at the sandy bottom. The vegetation starts gradually, but the coral becomes more dense from 20 feet. From 36 feet the reef is a bit steeper and up to 82 feet you will find the greatest variation in fish and sponges.
Between 16 and 39 feet you will find lots of turtles. Here, sergeant majors also monitor their bright purple colored eggs. The reef drops to 148 feet. Thanks to the flow that comes from around the southern tip of the island, bigger fish are regularly found here.
Do you want to visit Atlantis? In Bonaire Dive Guide you can find more information and detailed directions. Convenient, as many dive sites on the South 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.
