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.

This was a nice place to get in and warm up to diving again. It is used by many and the coral isn't in the best condition but it is a load of fun and relaxing!

This is always a good dive and the shade covered table and benches are a real plus for getting geared up.

We thought we were in an aquarium! The colors were spectacular and it was an easy dive site to get to.

A small sandy beach if you are lucky and the tide is low. Pristine blue water and a great spot for diving (as almost everywhere on the west coast), easy entry (when you passed the stairs).

Average by Bonaire standards, easy entry. The marker on road is hard to see, covered by bush. Not very crowded. Good entry for kids.

Fun to have the airplanes travel directly overhead. Also has a nice sandy beach area to just float during surface times. You can actually hear the reef rattling around with each wave!

Ladder down to a sliver of sand beach, but it drops off quicklly to moderately deep with a white sandy bottom. Like swiming in a giant pool so blue is the water.
