Located on a four-acre private peninsula on the unspoiled island of Bonaire, Harbour Village Beach Club’s well-appointed private suites are nestled amid lush tropical gardens, just steps from its dazzling white-sand beach. Amenities include an onsite First Class 5 Star PADI Instructor Development Center offering onsite scuba certification and a variety of other classes taught by some of the world’s top professional dive teachers, and dive sites just off the resort’s white-sand beach.
Bonaire is designated as having the most pristine coral reef environment and most species of fish in the Caribbean by the NOAA and is consistently named Best Overall Dive Destination by Scuba Diving Magazine’s Reader’s Choice Awards. Due to the island’s leeward location outside of the hurricane belt, and its consistently pleasant climate, crystal-clear visibility prevails at any depth and gives an enthralling view of the undersea landscape. Dive sites just off Harbour Village’s shore include the shipwreck of the 60-foot “Our Confidence,” located just 50 yards out, while another popular dive site, “Something Special,” is also a short swim away. The resort also offers florescence night diving, allowing guests to use special UV lights to see the astounding array of florescent colors emitted by underwater animals and corals.
The resort is also home to the acclaimed La Balandra Restaurant and Bar, the perfect spot for a romantic sunset dinner with a dining deck located on a jetty extending out to sea that gives the sensation of sailing into the Caribbean seascape. Other onsite amenities include The Spa at Harbour Village Beach Club, offering a full menu of professional reflexology, aromatherapy, therapeutic and relaxing couples massage. A private cascade pool and pool deck offer a tranquil retreat before or after a treatment.
In addition to diving, the resort’s concierge can help craft the perfect itinerary of island adventures. Explore natural wonders such as Bonaire’s famed solar salt beds and one of the world’s largest pink flamingo nesting grounds, or catch a glimpse of the island’s rare Bonairean Lora Parrot. Or relax at the resort, lounging at the seaside pool, dozing in a hammock on the beach or taking to the waves with our complimentary paddle boards and kayaks.
