Bonaire is a small island, covering roughly 111 square miles, with a width that ranges from 3 to 7 miles and a length of approximately 24 miles. Bonaire is located approximately 50 miles off of the coast of Venezuela.

Natalya, the drive from one end to the other (not going through the park) or from West to East and back is a good surface interval time :-)

natalya, we live at lighthouse beach resort, south of town. we can get to lac bay and sorobon in less than 10 minutes...that's going from west to east on kaya van epps. i would guess that to get from willemstoren lighthouse, all the way south, to bopec north of town, would take a little over 30 minutes. keep in mind that once you get north of 1000 steps, the road becomes one way and you have to get back to town via rincon.

As you will see from the maps, going all the way to the northern end through Washington-Slagbaai Park is not a 'straight drive'. Not quite 'off road' but definitely better in a 4-wheel drive vehicle, taking your time.

Depends on how fast you want to go,I think (1) hour is enough from north to south. bluefish

Personal experience.... drove all the way up to Boca Bartol (north end in the park) because we had heard that the surf was particularly calm there that morning. When we got there it most decidedly was NOT. Got back in the truck realizing that meant that most likely the south end would be pretty calm. We made it all the way to Red Slave in about 45 minutes.

If you want to make an interesting tourist trip, take one (full) day for the Washington park, (entrance fee), and another full day for "the rest", which means the toeristenweg, Goto-meer, Rincon, the Indian Inscriptions, the salt company, slave huts, Willemstoren, Sorobon, LacCai, Lagun lighthouse. This second trip could be done in two half-days, because it is half-north- and half-south-way. You will have all the time to stop, and enjoy the views, make pictures, eventually take a snorkel or swim somewhere (not on the rough side). And then of course you missed our shopping-street, and the populated areas, but both of them are not very interesting (although we as Bonairians are very happy with the shopping-possibilities.....)
