A few weeks ago we had a lot of sargassum (seaweed) on the east side of the island. A lot of volunteers directly helped to clean it all up so it would not affect our island. And it worked they all did a wonderful job! This shows that the people on Bonaire care about the beautiful unspoiled nature, and they like to keep it the way it is.
What more can you expect from Bonaire’s nature?
Divi Divi Tree
‘’Our’’ Divi Divi Tree or Watapana only grows on the ABC Islands! It is almost like a national symbol for Bonaire, Aruba and Curacao.
An amazing fact is that it grows with the wind, and as the wind most always comes from the same direction, they all grow the same way.
The Brandaris is the Mount Everest of Bonaire; this mountain is 241meters high and also the highest point of the island. The Brandaris is located in the national park and open for public to hike. On a clear day you can even see Curacao when on top of the Brandaris, but even without seeing curacao, the view is magical! Our tip when hiking the Brandaris? Take your picnic basket with you, and enjoy a nice lunch on top of the Brandaris, you will love it!
These days you will find a lot of Aloe Vera products in the stores, from drinks to crèmes it all exists! On Bonaire we are so lucky! We have the Aloe Vera plant grow all over the island. And the good thing about it, it is 100% natural and it helps against almost everything. Sunburned? Rash? Cut a piece of Aloe Vera and put it on, it surely helps.
It’s spectacular and fun to watch, a blow hole! We have a few on island, at Washington Slagbaai you will definitely see them!
