Slave Huts, Kralendijk

3.7
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.

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.
