Washikemba Area: After leaving civilization behind, your driver will take you in a Land Rover to the East Coast to explore the area of Washikemba. Here you will see giant rocks and cacti making a wild-west desert like impression and beautiful waves crashing on the coastline.
Lac Bay National Park: Passing by the mangrove forest, which is located in the Lac Bay National Park, you’ll enjoy the change in scenery. Venture through the lush green mangrove trees and shallow waters while looking out for wild donkeys, goats and even the famous pink flamingos.
Sorobon Lagoon: The shallow blue lagoon offers you the opportunity to see windsurfers and spot frigate birds.
Exploring South Coast: Your journey continues along the paved South Coast. On the left, giant waves crash into the coastline and on the right, see the old salt pyramids. Within this area is the protected Flamingo Reserve, a nesting ground for the largest Caribbean flamingo colony.
Willemstoren Lighthouse: Pass by Bonaire’s oldest lighthouse, constructed in 1837 and still in good working order.
Red & White Historical Huts: Stop by the white historical huts to explore these tiny structures, built back in 1850 to serve as facilities for those working in the salt ponds. Your guide will teach you the history about these small houses, the landmark obelisks and old salt pyramids.
Salt Pans & Salt Pyramids: A stunning contrast between the Caribbean Sea on one side, the beautiful pink salt pans on the other and the impressive “snowy” white drifts of salt. During a short stop, your guide will explain all about how salt is produced works and why the water is pink.
