The Bonaire tourist map shows all the dive and snorkelling sites around the island as well as the best bird watching places. The Official Roadmap with Dive Sites is available in some shops and adequate for most purposes. It gives a good street plan of Kralendijk, dive sites and points of interest on Bonaire and Klein Bonaire, but tends to indicate as ‘beach’ areas which are rocky cliffs.
