Karel's Beach Bar, Kralendijk, Bonaire

12 Kaya J.N.E. Craane
Tel: 599 717 8434
view web site ›'s insider take:

One of the immutable truths of the Caribbean is that every island has at least one overwater bar. On Bonaire, that bar is Karel's. The island's most reliable nighttime option stands like a beacon on a pier just off Kaya J.N.E. Craane, the Kralendijk waterfront's main drag. When cruise ships are in port, this is a loud, noisy place, a condition otherwise confined to Wednesday karaoke nights. And with a two-for-one happy hour (5 to 7 pm) and lack of a railing, Karel's can become a true dive bar, with customers making impromptu leaps into the sea.

Open daily 11 am to 2 am.
