With gorgeous, bright-white sand beaches, who wouldn’t want to explore the amazing island? According to its tourism group, there are over 22 tropical beaches on Bonaire and Klein Bonaire, one of them being its famous Pink Beach, know for… well, being pink!

“Pink Beach gets its color from the crushed shells of millions of microscopic bright pink sea creatures called foraminifera,” said Tourism Corporation Bonaire. “Pink Beach is an excellent beach to visit if you want to do some snorkeling or scuba diving. Although the strip of sand is relatively narrow, it is a great spot for relaxing picnics and the views are idyllic.”
