CURACAO TO BONAIRE - 7 Days

Curacao and Bonaire are Dutch islands that lie off the coast of Venezuela

Bonaire is a protected marine area and, as a result, offers some incredible snorkeling and scuba diving sites. 

The azure sea and pristine beaches are another temptation away from the yacht’s aft deck and on shore, there’s plenty of wildlife and cultural sites to see and explore.

CURACAO
Day 1

Join the yacht in Curacao’s Santa Cruz Bay, on the southwest of the island.  Whilst anchored here, visit the ‘Blue Room’ cave by tender or kayak and be amazed by the incredible deep-blue lighting effect.

Beach-hopping with the tender for a quick exploration of your surroundings is also recommended.  The Boca Santu Pretu is an unusually beautiful stretch of black-sand beach and just around the corner, you’ll discover contrasting white-sand beaches and all lapped by azure seas. 

Swim with turtles at the ‘Playa Piskado’ or if you’re feeling brave, leap from the cliffs at ‘Groot Knip’ and ‘Playa Forti’ into the seas.

KLEINE WERF
Day 2

Spending another day at Curacao, a stop at Kleine Werf will allow you to visit the city centre, which is on UNESCO’s list of World Heritage Sites.  Take a stroll around and savor the city’s history, culture and beauty.

A standout feature is the ‘Swinging Old Lady’ bridge, which was built in 1888.

The Mikvé Israel-Emanuel Synagogue is also worth a visit, this magnificent building is the oldest Synagogue in the Western Hemisphere.

FUIKBAAI AND KLEIN CURACAO
Day 3

Anchor at Fuikbaai for a peaceful morning and quiet kayak.  This is a particularly secluded bay with very little boat traffic.

After a lazy lunch onboard, the yacht will move on to Klein Curacao for the afternoon.  This is a small and uninhabited island off the southeastern tip of Curacao.  This is a great spot for snorkelling with plenty of fish, sea turtles and marine species to spot.  The sea is a crystal-clear blue and the sand is pearly white.

BONAIRE - HARBOUR VILLAGE MARINA
Day 4

Pulling into the harbour, step ashore for a stroll around the picturesque ‘Kralendijk’ city.

If you prefer to stay on the yacht and the water, then head for Lac Bay.  This shallow lagoon is 8km.sq and lies on the southeastern side of Bonaire.  There’s a mangrove forest here with an abundance of fish, shellfish, birds and turtles, and on the eastern edge the coral reef is an amazing spot for snorkeling.

On the way, stop to enjoy the view of the salt dunes and pink salt lakes.  For a more detailed inspection, visit the salt pier which is 10 minutes’ drive from the port.  Here you can see salt pillars fully encrusted with sponges and corals, and it’s another great place to snorkel or scuba dive.  There’s also a shipwreck here of the Kilma Hooker, which sank in 1984.

End the day at one of Bonaire’s fine restaurants.

KLEIN BONAIRE
Day 5

Klein Bonaire or “Little Bonaire” as it is also known, is located just off the west coast - about 800m from the shore.

Start the day early with breakfast on the beach of this peaceful islet and we recommend a visit to the Cadushi Distillery, where you can see how the world's only liqueur made from cactus is created.

Return to Harbour Village Marina for the night.  Visit the Coco Beach Bar to watch the sunset over Klein Bonaire or head to Little Havana for live music and a more local crowd.
