A Top Diving Destination in Bonaire

vgb

At Harbour Village Beach Club, unforgettable experiences are enjoyed above and below the water. A top dive destination for ten consecutive years, Bonaire is home to 86 well-defined dive sites.

Bonaire is consistently voted as the top diving destination in the Caribbean and Atlantic regions and was named “Best Overall Dive Destination” by readers of Scuba Diving Magazine. Due to more than 30 years of stringent environmental protection laws, The National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) recognized Bonaire as the island with "arguably the most pristine coral reef environment in the Caribbean" in 2008. Other studies have found that Bonaire is home to more species of fish than any other diving destination in the region. A pleasant year-round climate, crystal clear waters and abundant marine life –which includes over 300 species of tropical fish and over 120 different types of corals – are just some of the things visitors can expect to find below the waterline.
