Bonaire Flamingo Sanctuary

© noheadimg

In the southern part of Bonaire are huge areas of saltpans. Some 55 ha (135 acres) of them are designated as Flamingo Sanctuary. They provide breeding ground to huge amounts of flamingoes, sometimes up to 10,000.

Not far from the sanctuary, around Witte Pan, are several good beaches. There you can also see the remains of small stone huts that used to house the salt pan's slave workers.

Apart from the sanctuary, hundreds of flamingoes can also be seen in the north of Bonaire, at the saliñas of the Washington-Slagbaai National Park.
