To see the process, first-hand, from bringing in the ocean salt water to harvesting the salt is truly amazing. The use windmills to transfer the water to from one holding pond to the next as the salt concentration gets higher. The final holding ponds are...More

No trip to Bonaire is complete without a visit to the salt Pier. Its amazing how they use the ocean water to gain tons of salt. They have huge lakes which the sun dries out and in the end gain large amounts of salt. The...More

This was one of my favorite dive sites on Bonaire. We had a bit of trouble getting in and exiting at the time we went as the surf was pretty rough, but heard that going early in the morning can prevent this. Loads of fish,...More

Colors of Salt Pier and Salt pans are unbelievable . We have never seen these kind of colors in water before . Must say sun shine does important work with brightness , these kind of places earn a second visit .

The huge piles of snow-white salt are impressive, and it was interesting to see the conveyors carrying the salt to the cargo vessel, but other than taking in the view there's not much to do -it's a working salt facility, and not really set up...More

We visited the salt flats on a recent visit to Bonaire. I was unaware that the flats were still used to produce sea salt commercially. A major international company produces and ships from Bonaire world wide. The larger chunks of salt sparkled like large diamonds....More

Its hard to believe that our salt comes from these salt fields. And how long it takes to dry the salt out of the water.

I didn't see much when I snorkeled here. Perhaps it was because I didn't free dive; I just snorkeled out to the pilings. The current was strong and I did not see that many fish there. I did see a good variety along the rocks...More

I initially had no interest in diving here in favor of other sites, but eventually chose to try it out I'm happy I did, as I saw my first Sea Turtle hanging out in the sand just feet from the shore. Also saw a lot...More

Snorkelling is really nice at salt pier. It is a shallow dive site so you'll see lots that the divers see and every time I went there were young turtles around the sandy shallows . It's well worth the trip .

We were on Bonaire a couple of years ago and while shopping in town on our last night we were told you can go to the salt mines at night and find salt crystals and take them. Is this true? Has anyone done this? Where would you go for this? We definitely don't want to trespass or be where we shouldn't be. But also love the idea of a free souvenir. Any suggestions? Thanks
