Bachelor’s Beach Bonaire; it’s close to pretty much everything on Bonaire and is a no stress place to just stop and take in the crystal clear Caribbean Sea. It’s the perfect place to break in your new mask and snorkel.
Just landed? Want to take in some of that turquoise water but it’s already late afternoon? Here’s the perfect beach to go on your first day! Or any day…
Bachelor’s Beach is a quick ride from the airport or from Kralendijk or Belnem. The beach is not visible from the road – it’s looks like a little rocky parking lot with a couple of cement and thatched beach huts. Park your car or bike right there and take the ladder/steps down to the secluded sandy beach. If the tide is in there may not be any sand but swimming there is always gorgeous. If there’s no beach visible you can leave your things on the steps. Never crowded. Great place to snorkel – super easy, fun, zen away from it all but yet so close to it all.
Bachelors beach is located on the main oceanfront road – the same road as the airport – EEG blvd. If you make a left turn leaving the airport it will be on your right just past the road to Sorobon. Two cute little huts with a thatched roof mark this location. The huts are basically in the parking lot for Bachelor’s beach and are for public use.
Bring towels, beach chair and definitely don’t forget to bring a mask and snorkel gear. Entrance into the water in any location on Bonaire is easier with a mask so that you can watch for coral and rocks as you get in. Bachelor’s beach is particularly sandy for a Bonaire beach, so the entry into the water is fairly easy. This is also a good spot for catching some small waves on a windy day.
