Located just about 40 miles east from its bigger brother, Curaçao, and about 100 miles southeast from Aruba, the Caribbean island Bonaire is an oasis of natural beauty and tranquility. Together, the three islands are commonly referred to as the ABC islands and are part of the Kingdom of The Netherlands.
Bonaire is by far the least populated island of the three, with merely 20.000 permanent residents on 113 square miles. This means that there is plenty of space for nature: with over 200 species of birds, over 400 species of tropical fish and over 500 species of plants and trees, Bonaire is a safe haven for many animals, such as the pink Caribbean flamingo and the yellow-shouldered parrot, the Lora, which is unique to Bonaire.
Having such a diversity of flora and fauna, above as well as below water, the people of Bonaire recognize that action needs to be taken to preserve this piece of paradise. Bonaire is the world's first Blue Destination, which aims to builds a bridge between nature and society with sustainability in mind. Today, more than 40% of the electricity on Bonaire comes from renewable sources such as wind turbines and solar panels, and our tuks like this electricity a lot!
We at Bon Tuk want to contribute to the idea of sustainable living and tourism. Apart from using electrical vehicles, we also try to reduce the plastic waste that suffocates our ocean and island. We therefore encourage our guests to bring their own reusable water bottles. We will refill your bottle with fresh, cold and delicious Bonairean tap water for free! You don't have a water bottle? No problem, you can order one when you make your booking and we will bring it with us. Click here for more information about the water bottles.
