Fantastic Instagram Photos of Divi Flamingo Beach Resort

instagram photos of divi flamingoWe love seeing Divi Resorts through your eyes. We’ve started a new feature highlighting some of the best Instagram photos taken at each of our resorts. Our guests are amazing photographers who deserve a shoutout! Here are just a few fabulous Instagram photos of Divi Flamingo Beach Resort on Bonaire.

Our Crystal-Clear Water

You’d be hard-pressed to find more beautiful waters anywhere in the world. The ocean surrounding Bonaire is protected by the National Marine Park, and it’s easy to tell. Sometimes you can even see tropical fish from the balcony of your guest room!

It’s only been a week but I’m missing that water, sunshine and 80+ degrees

Our Stunning House Reef

Calabas Reef is located just off-shore from Divi Flamingo, and is accessible 24/7. The reef teems with vibrant marine life—it’s fun (and awe-inspiring) to see the broad diversity of sea creatures who call it their home, day and night.

25 Most Beautiful Places in the Caribbean

The Caribbean offers so much more than beaches in terms of beautiful scenery—although it’s also home to some of the best beaches in the world. Conde Nast Traveler published a list of the 25 Most Beautiful Places in the Caribbean, and we’re proud that three of our islands are featured in it.

The National Marine Park on Bonaire includes all waters surrounding the island. Its protected status is the reason Bonaire has the clearest water you’ll see anywhere, teeming with diverse marine life. Bathsheba Beach on Barbados is situated on the majestic eastern shore, a breathtaking stretch of rocky coastline and vibrant greenery. Renaissance Island on Aruba offers the perfect opportunity to view flamingos and take photos with these odd yet beautiful birds. Check out all three amazing entries on the list when you visit us in the Caribbean!

Bonaire was ranked No. 4 in a prominent Islands.com list of the world’s best islands for snorkeling, in the company of outstanding islands such as Fiji, Dominica and Maui. The list points to Bonaire’s 200-plus caves, beautiful fossilized coral and crystal-clear water. You can see the entire list here.

Bonaire, Home to One of the Natural Wonders of the Caribbean

About.com Travel recently named Bonaire’s National Marine Park one of the 7 Natural Wonders of the Caribbean. If you’ve been scuba diving or snorkeling with Divi Dive Bonaire, you’ve visited the Marine Park—it encompasses the entire island from its shoreline to a depth of 200 feet. From the vibrant diversity of underwater life that makes its home in the park, the healthiness of the area is clear. It’s considered to be the most well-protected reef system in the Caribbean.
