Donkey Sanctuary Bonaire, Bonaire

4.6
#4 of 27 in Parks in Bonaire
Visit Donkey Sanctuary Bonaire and meet its charming residents. Founded in 1939 by a Dutch couple, the sanctuary provides refuge and care for sick or orphaned donkeys in Bonaire. Take a drive through the large park where the donkeys are free to roam--you can pet them and feed them carrots on the drive. Visit the special care meadow, where pregnant, injured, and baby donkeys are kept, learn about the efforts of the sanctuary, and support the donkeys by buying souvenirs from the gift shop. After the tour, you can admire tortoises and iguanas in the garden, or relax with a refreshing drink on the terrace, which overlooks a salt lake.

Where to stay in Kralendijk

You'll most likely stay a stone's throw from the beach during your Kralendijk vacation. Most options in the area line the west coast, where you'll find a selection of holiday apartments, condominiums, and private villas. You can choose between somewhere offering a view of Klein Bonaire Island, or something farther south, closer to the airport.
