Our resort is proud to announce that we are the first of our kind to receive this recognition
On June 8, 2018, in celebration of World Ocean Day, Bonaire proudly announces the development of a multifaceted public-private partnership program that will officially establish Bonaire as the first Blue Destination. In committing to and adapting the sustainable use of ocean resources for growth, well-being, jobs, and the ocean ecosystem’s health, Bonaire will be the World’s First Blue Destination. Bonaire will position itself as a progressive island in terms of synergizing people and nature. This will increase Bonaire’s competitive position and secure its position as a leader in the preservation of its assets.
