Slave Huts, Kralendijk

3.8
#1 of 6 in Historic Sites in Bonaire
The cramped and inhumane conditions at Slave Huts continue to serve as a grim but important historical lesson. Built in 1850 and scattered along the coast, these small huts served as bedrooms and a place to store belongings while the Dutch colony's slaves were working on the salt fields, separated from their families. You can easily visit on a self-guided tour, as informational plaques next to the huts provide insight into the life of the slaves in the Caribbean.

  • We were there there were certainly 100 people who had come with vans. It turned out that there is a cruise-ship had arrived. It was a busy and everyone wanted a picture. It was more of a fairground attraction instead of something you both want. We are going to go back there if there are no cruise-ship in the harbor is!
