Owner description: "Pink beach" on the southwestern coast bearing cubby-house-sized stone huts in which slaves working the saltpans used to sleep.
Reviewed 6 July 2018

A nice little spot showing some of the island's past history right along the sea across from the salt ponds. Plenty of space to pull up and park by either car, motor coach or golf cart.

Well preserved, a visit to these slave huts is a must see to understand Bonaire's past. It is along the way as you drive south toward the Salt Pans (another must see) and work your way toward the kite surfers and wind surfers beaches.

Another great trip to Bonaire. We saw that one of the slave hits was demolished by getting hit by what we heard was, a drunk driver. The hit was leveled and the passengers had to be air lifted out to Curaco. Still a great pics of history. Make one appreciate and sympathize on what people had to endure.

Fascinating assortment of huts on the beach, close to the sea. Really small with small entrances. Four slaves used to sleep in each, they had so little room. Probably people in the 17th century were smaller than today. Interesting to see but you don't need too long here.

We stopped for about 10mins at the White slave huts. There are located on the south of the island. They were living facilities for slaves working in the salt ponds in the 1850's. They are very tight little huts. I couldn't image how horrible it would have been to live in. Most of them have been well maintained a few have collapsed. Worth the stop! Lots of history.
