Playa Benge has some of the most untouched reefs of Bonaire. The reef wall starts at about 11 meters. Sponges, glass fish, groupers and stingrays are common species at Playa Benge. Sometimes even larger species such as manta rays and hammerhead sharks can be seen. Playa Benge is also loved by the more experienced snorkelers.
Enter the water from the shore, after a short walk down from the parking lot. Playa Benge is a remote dive site. Enjoy the view after your dive on the bench in the shade (on parking lot).
Loose stones, be careful while entering the water. Look out for rip current. Choose a different dive site in the event of inland wind. Surf may effect visibility at beautiful coral fields near shore. The small sandy beach is used by turtles for nesting. M
