The local people are welcoming and helpful, and unlikely to approach you, unless asked. Do not mistake this for aloofness we can assure you local people are naturally shy. There is nowhere quite like Bonaire a charming island where you can relax and unwind completely. No hassle, no fuss, no one constantly trying to sell you something. A holiday on Bonaire is a genuinely memorable experience. No surprise that so many people fall in love with Bonaire and return, year after year ! In 1976 Bonaire's residents voted - in an island referendum - to resist over-development and introduce measures to conserve the natural environment of the island. This has made Bonaire a peaceful, natural "oasis" - in our hectic, busy world. There is a lot to see and do but in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. This wonderful small island is not a major tourist destination - no crowds on Bonaire - on land or sea ! No mass tourism, no theme parks, no fun fairs.
