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.

  • The houses of the slaves, out there with six or eight man lived. Impressive. And then work on the salt production.

  • Theres not just the huts on the shore, even more interesting is the dive site. Very typical for the southern area with lots of soft coral. As pictures say more than words you may check out xAe418IQ6Ec...  more »
  • Enjoyed riding around the island and seeing the historical site. Slaves were brought to the island specially to work the salt fields and the huts are so small you wonder how they could live in theme.  more »
