Washington Slagbaai National Park

The Washington Slagbaai National Park is located in the northern end of Bonaire. It comprises two former land plantations, Washington & Slagbaai, which once supplied salt, charcoal, aloe extract, divi-divi pods, and goats for export to Curaçao and Europe.

The Washington National Park was initially founded in 1969 as the first Nature Sanctuary of the Netherlands Antilles. Ten years later, the Slagbaai land plantation was negotiated and added thereby creating the Washington Slagbaai National Park”.

Beaches

The shores of Bonaire are graced with sandy and rocky beaches alike, including Atlantis Beach, Flamingo Beach, Pink Beach and Boka Kokolishi. However, none is quite as unique as 1000 Step Beach.

With white sands and bleached bits of coral, the semi-hidden beach is any beach-goer’s dream. There are 67 historic steps (not 1000!) that lead down to the sand and water. Once at the ground level, you can enjoy the pristine snorkeling conditions, admire the surrounding limestone cliffs, and delight in the wildlife.

History:

Just off the coast of Venezuela, this southern Caribbean gem welcomes visitors to its sunny shores. A municipality of the Netherlands, Bonaire has been under Dutch protection since 1636, after winning a war against the Spanish. However, Spanish was still the predominantly spoken language until the late 1800s. With a unique history and cultural tapestry, the island of Bonaire in the Leeward Antilles is a wonderful destination to see a different side of the Caribbean.

History lovers should head to Bonaire Museum. With preserved tools from pre-colonial times, colonial artifacts, and some natural artifacts like coral and fossils. The building of the museum is also a historic site, dating back to 1885!

For those who want to learn more, the Terramar Museum showcases exhibits that focus on specific periods of Bonaire’s history, such as shipbuilding, colonial agriculture, or the native populations. The museum also hosts rotating exhibits, so who knows what you might learn!
