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.
