“Lizard fever”
Reviewed 27 February 2013

This is a dive site where you will be greeted by many lizards. There is also a flamingo spotting opportunity.

When it is time to drive off make sure you chase the lizards away as they will be hiding under your car.

“Gorgeous, secluded beach”
Reviewed 12 December 2012

Very pretty beach on the rough side of the island. No sandy entry, but great for pictures, snorkling, etc.

“great snorkeling”
Reviewed 28 November 2012

What a cool little beach, although you must drive about half way through the park to get to it. On one side of the road is a brackish lake, complete with brine shrimp, birds and flamingos. On the other side is a great snorkeling beach, easy to enter, relatively calm water, some nice coral formations, good fish viewing. There are also many lizards in this parking area, what fun to watch.

“Crystal Clear Water”
Reviewed 3 July 2012

Worth the stop if driving through the Washington-Slagbaai National Park in Bonaire. The water from cliff-top is crystal clear. From 100' up you can easily spot Parrot Fish swimming below. We didn't dive this site but the divers coming out were pleased with their dive.

Keep an eye out for the Pink Flamingos in the nearby salt pans.
