The island of Bonaire has swept top honors receiving six #1 ratings, more than any other destination scored in the Caribbean/Atlantic category, while continuing its reign as one of the top diving destinations. For the tenth consecutive year, Bonaire has taken first place for Best Overall Destination and island for Best Shore Diving.
Bonaire received first place in four other Caribbean/Atlantic categories: Best Marine Life, Best Macro Life, Best Destination For Snorkeling, and Best Destination For Value For Diving. It also received second place ratings in the categories of Best Marine Environment, Best Visibility and Best Destination for Diving for a total of nine awards for 2012.
The island is also rapidly becoming one of the world’s top eco-adventure destinations – so other than diving, you can enjoy windsurfing, cave exploration, kayaking, mountain biking, or just relaxing in the sunshine.
