Driving south some 20 min from Kralendijk this is the first row of slave huts.
Slaves worked on the nearby salt mining plants. Huts are white painted and located between the Salt pier north and the second row of yellow slave huts further south.
It was hard to imagine that around 5 slaves lived in such low and tiny huts - I had problems entering them almost on my knees.
Today they're kept as a bitter history reminder of the Caribbean slave past. Entry is free.

If you don't have your own guide, get close to a group to get some information about what the history is. Nothing wrong with tipping a little also.

Loved this part of our tour. I can't imagine sleeping in those with several other people. Those along with the salt flats were really interesting.

A tough part of the history of Bonaire to learn about. We accessed the Slave Huts and Salt Flats via a guided tour on a bus. The salt ponds are still a big source of income form Bonaire, owned now by food giant, Cargill.

A very beautiful setting and worth the time to learn and reflect.

I would not rate this place as any other tourist attraction. Here is more about becoming aware of the slave huts history and reflect about it.
If you are already in south make a stop to take in some of this place sad history. A striking contrast between the purpose of these huts and the breathtaking natural location.

As part of an organized tour, our small group stopped at the slave huts after taking in the salt production flats. (It was right up the road.) The few buildings were quite small, but loaded with historic information! We were there for around 10 minutes for picture taking and for our guide to discuss the History and answer our questions. It was a worthwhile stop as part of a tour, but I wouldn't book this spot on its own.

The slave huts are well preserved we saw white ones at the main site and some yellow ones. They were incredibly small and not high enough for people to stand in. Conditions must have been unbearable. The sea around the slave huts were so beautifully blue.

I saw these slave huts - tiny, crude, but shelter if needed. The coral as shown here in this picture, looked like bones - very weird. The water beyond the slave huts was beautiful.

We found two places where there are these reminders of a previous time. Small, cramped and I'm sure pretty miserable living but better than being out in the elements back in the day.

Considering this is just a short stop on what every person should do as a "road trip" through south of the island and the fact at is next to other small attractions in the area I say it's definitely worth every person's time.

TIP: just visiting one is not as "complete" experience as visiting at two (Orange Pan) (there are 4 obelisks but just two sides include huts) - once you do both the history behind this side of the island comes together better and makes way more sense

TIP: on the way you have flamingos, salt flats etc. - we drove a small passenger car, it's a paved road, just narrows at points where you need to slow down to share the road with oncoming traffic
