Caribbean Netherlands

Bonaire, Sint Eustasius and Saba, better known as the Caribbean Netherlands, are all that remains of the Netherlands Antilles. The West Indies are a mosaic of cultures and influences, the Caribbean Netherlands providing the Dutch element. With its six-metre-deep coral reefs in the clear sea, Bonaire is the ideal destination for diving. Sint Eustatius still has traces of its military past and offers a motley show of French colonial buildings, Dutch synagogues and the Church of England. Treat yourself to a stop at Saba, to ascend the 800 steps carved into the mountain. Not to be missed: • Scuba diving in Bonaire • Visit to the beaches of Saba • Excursion to the Quill volcano
