Bonaire is a special municipality (officially public body) of the Netherlands. Together with Aruba and CuraƧao it forms a group referred to as the ABC islands of the Leeward Antilles.

Bonaire's economy is mainly based on tourism. The island caters mainly to scuba divers and snorkelers, as there are few sandy beaches, while the surrounding reefs are easily accessible from the shore.
