(4.6/5 based on 25 reviews on the web)
Drive out to the historical salt flats at Pekelmeer and take in the surreal sights and beautiful flamingos that live here in santuary.

Witness foaming drifts undulating by the road and kite surfers leaping from the sea nearby. Be sure to check out the former slave huts on the beaches and get a sense of the living conditions of those who worked here. Don't forget to bring your camera to capture the bizarre vistas on show.

  • A place atypical after touring several islands on a cruise, a quiet, little people, to go there to take a tour or rent a car / taxi. Very nice but to take advantage of it I suggest going with a guide that explains the process of salt. Lots of colors between the Red of the waters of the factory, the blue of the sea and the white of salt. Unique experience as everything in bonaire.
