See the highlights of Kralendijk in the comfort of an electric-powered Tuk-Tuk, enjoying the open air and enlightening commentary by your local guide and driver.

Depart directly from the pier in a Tuk-Tuk, an emission-free vehicle that looks similar to an oversized golf cart. These vehicles were originally used as mini taxis in Thailand, where the name tuk tuk is meant to imitate the sound of the small engines – however the Bonaire models are mounted with electric engines and are very quiet. As you drive south along the coast, you will soon come upon Fort Orange, which was built in 1639. Heavily fortified, it was never attacked and over time it was used for alternate purposes, including a government center, fire station and prison. The fort’s cannons are from the early 1800s, a time when the British controlled the Dutch West Indies.

Continuing on, you will stop at the statue of Gilberto Betico Croes, a political activist that was instrumental in helping neighboring Aruba gain its independence from the Netherland Antilles. Bonaire is considered a special municipality of the Netherlands, and you’ll notice the Dutch influence in the capital’s delightful architecture. In Dutch, Kralendijk (Crawl-en-dike) means “coral reef,” a reference to the many reefs surrounding Bonaire.

Other highlights along your route include the island’s largest church and the nearby saltwater flats. Flamingoes often gather in the shallow water to dine on brine shrimp, a diet that endows them with a beautiful rosy hue. Following your exploration of the city by Tuk-Tuk, you will return to the pier.

Those guests with mobility concerns are cautioned only to participate to the extent of their personal stamina and ability.
