#3 of 6 in Historic Sites in Bonaire
If you’re in town and fancy a bit of history, take a look at Fort Oranje, a small Dutch fortification built over 300 years ago. Boasting impressive views of the ocean and close proximity to shops and restaurants, you can wander around within the walls, though most of the actual building is still used by the government. Original British naval cannons stand on the walls, and the tapered lighthouse serves as a striking landmark. By using our Kralendijk online trip planner , you can arrange your visit to Fort Oranje and other attractions in Kralendijk.
