Kas Chapian in Bonaire is a beautiful contemporary oceanfront vacation villa, a wonderful mix of beauty and serenity. The latest masterpiece, combining all his ideas of the previous villa’s. Direct access to the reef (Chapin means Trunkfish in Papiamento) only meters away from the enormous open living room.
Eating lobster, fresh from the sea – grilled or in a delicious salad, a cold bottle of Carib in your hand, sitting on a wooden bench, and bare feet in the sand. Karibuni, is a unique beach restaurant on the uninhabited island Ile Pinel.
Bonaire has consistently ranked as the finest snorkeling and scuba diving destination in the Caribbean. A major reason for this prominence is the island's diligent stewardship of its marine resources -- all of the waters off Bonaire's coast have been legally protected since 1979, and it shows.
But there is plenty more to do here. The unusually steady trade winds that wash over the island create ideal conditions for world-class windsurfing and kiteboarding, and the sere beauty of its semi-desert landscape is home to an outlandish assortment of wildlife. Iguanas meditatively toast themselves atop the desert rock formations of Washington Slagbaai, Bonaire's land-based natural park, while vast orange-pink clouds of flamingos drift across bone-white salt flats. Divi-divi trees bend into surreal sculptures of the wind itself, and towering cacti stand as reminders of the Caribbean's diverse ecology.
