A little information about the city and the island.

From Wiki:

Quote:
Kralendijk is a city located in the island of Bonaire, in the Netherlands Antilles. The main language spoken in the town is Papiamentu, but, because of the town's position on the tourist map, English is widely understood.

Off the coast of Kralendijk lies the uninhabited island of Klein Bonaire, a diving and snorkeling paradise. It can be reached by water taxi.

Sights and activities

There is a shopping mall in Kralendijk and a main street.

Supermarkets include Cultimara (in downtown Kralendijk) or Warehouse (located on the way to the airport from town).

Near the Town Pier, Venezuelan merchants have a Roman-style covered pavillion where you can find fresh produce, especially fish, fruit and vegetables.

There are fine historical buildings around Wilhelmina Park - the Customs House and the Old Fort close to the Town Pier.

Parades in fancy dress occur at Carnival time in February or March.
Quote:
Bonaire is an island in the Netherlands Antilles, and as such, is a part of the Kingdom of the Netherlands. Together with Aruba and Curaçao it forms a group referred to as the ABC islands of the Leeward Antilles, the southern island chain of the Lesser Antilles. While Papiamentu, Spanish and English are commonly spoken, the official language is Dutch.

Bonaire has a land area of 288 km² (111 sq. miles). As reported in the 9/2/2007 "Bonaire Reporter', according to Bonaire's Afdeling Bevolking (census) office the population was 14,006 inhabitants as of December, 2006, which means a population density of 49 inh. per km². Uninhabited Klein Bonaire, nestled in the western crescent of the main island, is 6 km² (2.3 sq. miles). Bonaire is served by Flamingo International Airport.

The structure of the relationship between Bonaire and the Kingdom is being considered for change under proposed legislation.

Diving and Other Natural Features

Bonaire is world renowned for its excellent scuba diving and is consistently rated among the top shore diving and Caribbean diving locations in the world. Bonaire's license plates carry the logo Diver's Paradise (in English). The island is ringed by a coral reef which is easily accessible from the shore along the Western and Southern sides. Furthermore, the entire coastline of the island has been declared a marine sanctuary, preserving local fish life. Bonaire is also consistently recognised as one of the best destinations for snorkeling.

The coral reef around uninhabited Klein Bonaire is particularly well conserved, and it draws divers, snorkelers, and boaters.

Bonaire is also famed for its flamingo populations and its donkey sanctuary. Flamingos are drawn to the brackish water, which harbours shrimp they feed on. Starting in the 1500s, the Dutch raised sheep, goats, pigs, horses and donkeys on Bonaire, and the descendants of the goats and donkeys roam the island today.

Washington Slagbaai National Park, located at the north side of the island, is an ecological preserve. The highest point of Bonaire, Brandaris, located within this preserve has a complete view of the island.

Lac Bay, (also known as Lac Cai or Lac Cay) on the eastern side of the island, is a windsurfer's paradise. Locals Taty and Tonky Frans in 2004 were ranked in the top five of the world's freestyle windsurfing professionals.

Hello fellow SSC enthousiasts,

I've been a lurker for many years and finally made an account about a year ago, I've enjoyed this forum for a long time and I felt this was the right place to bring this post.

There's something I'd like to bring to your attention. Since it has to do with Bonaire, I'll leave it in this thread instead of opening a new one, although I might make a separate thread later on.

Like many of you who are part of this community, I enjoy construction projects all around the world and this one is especially close at heart because it's located on my island. I am in total favor of this development and hope you will take a look at it.

I'll leave the link here:

Please read and sign.
