About Bonaire

Pekelmeer

This lake is bright pink! The brine lake is used to extract salt from sea water. The water is extremely salty and therefore only one type of algae can survive in these conditions. This algae is only eaten by one kind of shrimp. The shrimps give the water its characteristic pink colour. And if you are lucky, you may even see a real Caribbean flamingo!

Another beautiful lake to visit is Gotomeer. Here you will find beautiful nature and also here you may meet our pink friends.
