Thousand Steps

Thousand Steps is one of the most famous dive sites in all of Bonaire. Parking for this site is at the top of a cliff where you descend down 67 stairs with your gear on to access the beach. The long set of steps is where this site gets its name. A beautiful dive location.

You’ll see typical Caribbean life like nurse and reef sharks, possible eagle rays, turtles, stingrays, and lots of fish: snapper, angelfish, grunts, parrot fish, and grouper.
