Bonaire puts the ‘B’ in the ABC islands, the Caribbean chain which also includes Aruba and Curacao. The most popular thing to do on Bonaire is go diving, as the island has plenty of gorgeous reefs just off the coast. The beaches are fantastic, and nature lovers will enjoy spotting flamingos and wandering around the Washington-Slagbaai National Park. Rock art and disused slave shelters hint at the island’s past, while a huge variety of water-sports ensure that you never need to sit still for too long.
