Kralendijk—Bonaire's capital city—is a quaint hub of commercial and cultural activity comprising only a few blocks in size. While strolling along the streets, you'll notice well-preserved architecture, waterfront eateries, and a small yet bustling market.
Head to Queen Wilhemina Park for Bonairean souvenirs, and when it's prime cruise ship season, catch a traditional music or dance performance while shopping. These performances offer a colorful glimpse into Bonaire's heritage, and liven up this normally quiet city.
You'll also find two worthwhile museums here: the Bonaire Museum (Museo di Bonaire) and BonaireArt (Kas di Arte). The Bonaire Museum offers a lesson on the island's history, while BonaireArt showcases rotating exhibitions from local artists. Kralendijk sits about two miles north of Bonaire International Airport on the island's southwestern side. For more information about what to do in Kralendijk, visit the Bonaire Tourism website.
