Lake Gotomeer, Bonaire

3.9
#6 of 14 in Nature in Bonaire
Visit Lake Gotomeer and treat yourself to pristine surroundings of calm salty water, green hills, and hundreds of flamingos. A 70 m (230 ft) wall of coral separates the lake from the sea. Though no visible connection with the ocean can be seen, the salty water suggests an underwater connection still exists. Bring plenty of food and drinks as there are no nearby shops. Plan your visit to Lake Gotomeer and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Washington-Slagbaai National Park trip planning app .
