Hello Kralendijk

Bonaire has a population of just over 18,000, of which around 3,000 live in its capital city, Kralendijk. This quaint, colorful little city is where you'll find most of the island's luxury resorts, which stretch along the coast and look out over the water to Klein Bonaire. This small island, even smaller than Bonaire, is a great spot for scuba diving and is easily reached by boat taxi. There are a couple of interesting museums and historical buildings for you to discover in Kralendijk too, including the Terramar Museum and Fort Oranje, and the coral-filled waters of Bonaire National Marine Park teem with marine wildlife. Kralendijk is also a great base from which to set off and explore the rest of the island. Further south, the tiny Slave Huts of Bonaire are a striking, physical reminder of the island's connection to the slave trade, while yet more beaches, including the popular islander hangouts of Donkey Beach and Te Amo Beach, are only ever a short distance away. Keep an eye out for any yellow-painted rocks on your travels; these tell you where to find the best scuba diving spots!
