This dive site has a fairly low current, therefore it is an ideal place for beginners. You can also make night dives easily because the parking lot along the road is located close to town.
At the beach are some shelters and benches so you can enjoy some shade. At low tide there is a small beach down the cliff. You can use this beach to go into the water, or use the stairs. The plateau is sandy, which makes the water cloudy sometimes.
Around the buoy at 16 feet, the reef starts out soft and then turns into hard coral. The reef has a gentle slope, in some places up to 131 feet deep. In many places the reef stops at 92 feet. At this reef you see lots of small reef fish, but not so many big fish. If you dive at night you always swim with a Tarpon, which uses the light of your lamp.
Do you want to visit Bachelor’s Beach? 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.
