Windsock is a small, two storey, attractive apartment block, in the residential area of Belnem, 4 km south of Kralendijk, Bonaire's main town. (3km as the Flamingo flies!). The small apartment building consists of just 8 luxury apartments is surrounded by a tropical garden. Very secluded and quiet. These apartments are very well equipped and nicely decorated, spacious with a fresh atmosphere. We were very impressed with the quality of these apartments the first time we saw them - and now several satisfied customers have become definite "fans". Most visitors to Bonaire are "independently" minded travellers and Windsock offers excellent self catering opportunities, seclusion and privacy, but within a few minutes you can be in Kralendijk with a surprising number of excellent restaurants to choose from. Not far from Windsock is an excellent new supermarket which has everything you might need if you wish to self cater.
Windsock is eight excellent apartments on the coast road in a quiet residential area.
Close to the town - and just 200 metres from the beach - an excellent location
Windsock has a small private beach which has a dive operation for guests.
Windsock is good quality accommodation - private and very well priced.
Windsock Beach Resort has a small private beach, 100 metres away, with a dive refill station. The dive operation is run by Wannadive - a friendly and very professional crew. You will be well looked after, by this fantastic group of people. The apartments are just 200 metres from Donkey Beach, a great sandy beach, a favourite with locals and visitors. At weekends people enjoy the beach socially with picnics and barbecues. The beach is a great site for diving and snorkelling but, then again, so is the entire south west coast, which is on your door step. Windsock is located on coast road, which leads to the many shore diving sites south of Kralendijk, whilst the town itself is very close. Turn left out of the gate onto the coast road and for 8 miles nothing stands between you and the wonderful ocean. Over half the shore dive sites - great for snorkellers too - are on this road which runs, parallel to the ocean just a few metres from the water's edge. Being in a quiet area, Windsock is secluded and if you prefer peace and privacy, but with everything you need for a great holiday close to hand, Windsock will suit you perfectly.

Bonaire is famous for its wonderful diving and snorkelling and is officially recognised by the NOAA as having the most pristine coral reef and the most species of fish in the Caribbean. Bonaire is consistently voted the "Best Overall Dive Destination" by divers. The Reef Environmental Education Foundation has 8 of Bonaire's dive sites in their top 10 Caribbean sites in terms of species richness. Click the diving and/or snorkelling links above for more information on the fantastic diving and snorkelling on Bonaire.
On Bonaire most diving is shore diving and snorkellers can enjoy the 51 shore entry sites too. Shore diving means you can dive/snorkel when you like. Our DDD offers are the best possible price for a diving holiday. "Unlimited air" means what is says. As much air as you want, and 24 hour access to fresh tanks, so you don't have to stop when the sun goes down. Bonaire is a small island, refills are never far away.
To make the most of this freedom, to get to all the shore entry sites and explore the island, most visitors hire a vehicle. Driving is easy and on Bonaire you are never more than 20 minutes from Windsock or 5 minutes from the ocean. We can arrange vehicle hire at a lower rate than you would pay on island. Custom built dive boats are available for divers and snorkellers, of course, comfortable and well equipped for the very short ride to the dive sites. Boats take very small groups, usually 6 to 8 divers and snorkellers. At most sites there will be just you and few (new) friends. Boats can get booked up very easily.
Booking your diving, vehicle hire or other services for your holiday with us, will save you money and it will be part of an ATOL protected holiday itinerary. It will guarantee that service will be available to you on island and avoid possible disappointment.
We work closely with all the diver centres on Bonaire, all PADI 5 star centres, which have everything divers and snorkellers need. A full range of equipment for sale or hire, instruction courses for all levels, including complete beginners and youngsters. Guided day and night dives are available. Divers are asked for a contribution of $25, and snorkellers $10, to the Bonaire Marine Park for the protection of the reef and the ocean. Payable at your dive centre. Wear your tag with pride. This contribution entitles you to free entrance to the Slagbaai National Park. Tanks are A clamp and, if you have DIN fittings, you will need to bring a converter with you - or hire one on island.
