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.
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.
At Divi Resorts, we love diving. It’s one of the few sports that can be relaxing, invigorating, and educational at the same time. And, here in the Caribbean, you’re never far from the next amazing dive site. Our clear waters and vibrant underwater life make sure of that.
The dive organization PADI recently published a blog post about the mood-boosting benefits of scuba diving. If you’re having a bad day—or a bad couple of months—scuba diving is a great way to relax, recharge, and reset. Immersed in a new underwater world, surrounded by fascinating marine life, your everyday worries can seem very far away.
That’s just one of the ways scuba diving can enhance your life. PADI’s blog post also mentions the connections you can form with other diving enthusiasts, the challenge of earning certifications, and the rewarding feeling of participating in marine cleanups. Diving can even promote physical health and lifelong learning, PADI asserts.
All our islands offer great diving opportunities, but the best vacation spot for anyone looking to “dive in” to the sport is Bonaire. The small Caribbean island is known for its world-class, yet easily accessible diving. Divi Dive Bonaire at Divi Flamingo Beach Resort teaches certification courses for all levels, and provides a wide variety of boat diving, shore diving, and truck diving packages. Shore diving is accessible 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Can you imagine recharging after the holidays with some firsthand oceanic exploration? You’d get a taste of our quiet, unspoiled Caribbean life on Bonaire—above and below the sea. You might even feel great.
