Salt Flats, Bonaire

4.3
#7 of 15 in Nature in Bonaire
Observe the otherworldly beauty of Salt Flats. Its mountains of white salt, set against pink seas and industrial salt works, make for some surreal photo opportunities. Find out about the interesting gravity-feed process that has been going on over 350 years, see the beach huts used by the slaves who worked here, and go swimming in the open ocean. Flocks of flamingos and other wildlife are regulars here, so don’t forget your binoculars. Put Salt Flats into our Kralendijk trip maker and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.
