Playa Funchi, Washington-Slagbaai National Park

3.1
#7 of 7 in Beaches in Bonaire
Divers and snorkelers alike can enjoy Playa Funchi, a quiet beach teeming with wildlife both in and out of the water. Explore the beach, set within the Washington-Slagbaai National Park. You'll find it down a short but hard to navigate road, so exercise caution when driving. You can enjoy great views from the clifftops of the clear water below; watch flamingos in the nearby salt pans and lizards basking in the sun. For snorkelers, entry to the water can be difficult, so wear shoes and remain aware of the very strong currents in this part of the island. Bring plenty of water and sunscreen as there aren't any amenities on site. Put Playa Funchi and other Washington-Slagbaai National Park attractions into our Washington-Slagbaai National Park trip planner, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • My husband and son have dived, I have snorkeled. They found especially the coral there beautifully. I have high (Parrot) fish. Gorgeous! They found that, of the nine diving on Bonaire, this was the most beautiful place (I also, in terms of fishing, for snorkeling). We have the pick up parked on the beach. On the one hand, the Lake with the flamingos, on the other hand the sea! If you on the other side up climbs, you see the parrot fish swimming and you have a great view!

  • All accessible place for the water to go provided that you do not have to steps on coral. From your water in fish is going to come to you. Also when you go snorkeling you see a lot of beautiful, colorful fish. We were recommended to you personal equipment on the rocks. Occasionally, the waves what further or blowing a little harder making you matter in the water is. The fun snorkel spot can you combine with a tour in Washington Slagbaai park. This trip costs a $75 with drinks and food included. You drive a 4 x 4 through the park with a guided tour.

  • A beautiful place. Could the ladies here in the shadows waiting for our divers. We left the ladies left with a horde of salamanders, lizards and iguanas. That all came off on the banana and cookies they have brought with them. More than an hour. An easy entry level, briefly heading and a fantastic reef. Top
