The Island of Bonaire, a thinly populated, barren looking island, is part of Netherlands Antilles and lies 50 miles north of Venezuela, in the Southern Caribbean, outside the hurricane belt. Bonaire is 24 miles long by 3-7 miles wide. Sunny all year round, visitors enjoy a temperate climate. Bonaire has earned a reputation for being one of the most environmentally conscious islands in the Caribbean.

The languages spoken are Dutch, Papiamento (Local Language), with some English (in the tourism industry) and some Spanish. Local culture is a mix of Dutch and Spanish. The population is a mixture of more than 80 nationalities and ethnic backgrounds.

One of the charms of Bonaire living is the islandís size. Being small, everything is accessible, making it easy to enjoy the islandís treasures.

Bonaire is volcanic in origin, once defined by a volcanic ridge that extended the length of the island.

The north and south ends of Bonaire are of surprising diverse landscape for such a small place. The entire island is fairly arid, but the north tends to be hilly with more vegetation, while the south is flat and wind-swept. Both regions offer their geographic charms, beautiful beaches and designated sanctuaries to protect a flock of pink flamingos.

Bonaire is seen and also rated as one of the top divers paradise, because of its pristine marine life.The surrounding seas up to a depth of 65 metres have been made a national park. There are more than 85 dive spots and over 50 shore dive sites.

Besides underwater wonders, many animals live on Bonaire's 112 square miles of land.  Iguanas, roadrunners, and birds live in the Washington Slagbaai National Park, where curious rock formations, such as Seru Bentana, add to the landscape.  More than 5000 pink flamingos nest in the Flamingo Reserve, on the southern salt flats of the Pekelmeer, and wild donkeys roam the countryside. 

Sorobon Beach Resort, on the quiet and tranquil Island of Bonaire,  sits on one of the most beautiful stretches of sand in the Caribbean. Sorobon Beach Resort has a private beach with shaded cabannas and lounge chairs. The shallow bay is protected by a coral reef and is ideal for swimmers, snorkelers and windsurfers. The 30 comfortable cottages of Sorobon Beach Resort offer splendid panoramic views of the bayís colorful wildlife both above and below the sea.
