Kralendijk Shore Excursions

Wilhelmina Park doorstep attraction (easy walk or less than 5mile-8km taxi/bus ride from port) Wilhelmina Park Across from the cruise ship pier there is an outdoor Market in Wilhelmina Park. Local stallholders sell a wide variety of goods, including foodstuffs, arts, and clothing. The street just inland from the park, Kaya Grandi, is also home to many shops including souvenirs, clothing, food and diving equipment outlets.

No Name Beach, Klein Bonaire doorstep attraction (easy walk or less than 5mile-8km taxi/bus ride from port) No Name Beach, Klein Bonaire The small island of Klein Bonaire is about a mile offshore from Kralendijk. No Name beach is a beautiful long stretch of fine white sand on the east of the island, with excellent swimming, snorkeling and sunbathing. There is little shade available, so don’t forget to bring sunscreen and a plentiful supply of water. Several inexpensive water taxi services operate out of Kralendijk, but you will have to pay the extra $10 National Marine Park fee.

Klein Bonaire’s Reef doorstep attraction (easy walk or less than 5mile-8km taxi/bus ride from port) Klein Bonaire’s Reef Klein Bonaire’s Reef is home to an amazing variety of marine life, including the elusive seahorse. It’s possible to snorkel off many dive sites on the island, but particularly recommended is the fabulous drift snorkel from one end of the island to the other, making for an unforgettable experience.

Thousand Steps Beach Thousand Steps Beach About 8 miles north from Kralendijk, along the coastal Queen’s Highway route lies the beautiful Thousand Steps Beach. The steps down to the beach are quite steep (there’s nowhere near a thousand, probably less than a hundred), but it’s worth it when you arrive at the picture-prefect curve of white sand and coral pebbles. To get to the beach from Kralendijk transport options include a cab, or hiring a car/scooter(s).

Lake GotoMeer Lake GotoMeer Lake GotoMeer is an inland lake in the northwest part of the island, just a couple of miles past Thousand Steps Beach. The lake is popular because it’s home to large numbers of spectacular flamingos. Through the January to April breeding season every corner of the lake is dotted with pink. The birds are notoriously skittish though, so you made need a telephoto lens on your camera to capture an up-close photo.
