Slave Huts, Kralendijk

3.5
#3 of 15 in Sightseeing in Bonaire
Historic Site Landmark
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.

  • During a vacation on Bonaire, it is a must to somewhat by the history of the island. One of the parts of the history of Bonaire can be found in the South of the island, namely the Slave Huts; small houses where the slaves stayed (with up to six men in one cottage) while they work on the salt flats. An impressive place to take.
