Aruba has fantastic windsurfing due to consistently strong trade winds, and this beach located in the southeast of the island is one of the top places for this popular sport.

The beach was close to our rental and had a marked dive site so we ventured for a short dive before refilling our tanks. Although the site information indicates there is stair access, the stairs do not go all the way to the beach. The...More

The beach could be really nice. Always seems like locals and kids are here. The beach however was covered in plastic bottles and wrappers and other assorted garbage. Really a shame because the dive entry is easy once you're down the steps and the dive...More

Bachelor's beach was just a hundred meter from my hotel 'Renaissance at Sea'. The beach was really small (almost no beach at high tide) but looked really lovely. Not many people, mostly locals.

This dive site is supposedly named for a bachelor who got drunk, fell in the sea and drowned - not the most cheerful of things to be told as you prepare to jump off the boat! But it's a lovely dive, good corals and plenty...More

Bachelor's Beach was just a few steps down the road from our hotel, Bellafonte. We could see the lights of night divers from our dock almost every night. We did one of our last dives at Bachelor's and it was very nice. It doesn't rank...More

There is a nice, sandy entry unlike most of the other beaches. Looks like a popular place for locals to swim, though not crowded. Saw a huge green moray at around 40 ft. deep.

This was a very easily accessible dive spot. There's a concrete stairwell going down to the water so entering and exiting with all your gear is a breeze. The parking lot is a little sketchy....condoms and empty beer bottles on the ground. We were warned...More

Nice reef close to shore. Entrance is easy and you can always just relax at the beach. Nice sand and few rocks. Locals seem to enjoy it too.

we tried 10 or so snorkeling sites on Bonaire and this was one of the least good. Small sandy beach (that's good), plenty of parking, but this is more of a local children's swimming spot than snorkeling. We were told turtles and stingrays are seen...More
