Basic information about Bonaire, Saint Eustatius and Saba
The Caribbean Netherlands (Dutch: Caribisch Nederland) are the three of the Netherlands that are located in the Caribbean Sea. They consist of the islands of Bonaire, Sint Eustatius, and Saba, although the term \Caribbean Netherlands\ is sometimes used to refer to all of the islands in the Dutch Caribbean. In legislation, the three islands are also known as the BES islands (a more traditional acronym of their names). The islands are currently classified as public bodies in the Netherlands and as overseas countries and territories of the European Union; thus, EU law does not automatically apply. Bonaire (including the islet of Klein Bonaire) is one of the Leeward Antilles and is located close to the coast of Venezuela. Sint Eustatius and Saba are in the main Lesser Antilles group and are located south of Sint Maarten and northwest of Saint Kitts and Nevis.The Caribbean Netherlands (Dutch: Caribisch Nederland) are the three of the Netherlands that are located in the Caribbean Sea.

BonaireBonaire (pronounced /bɔːˈnɛər/ or /bɒnˈɛər/; Dutch: Bonaire, pronounced [boˈnɛːr(ə)]; Papiamentu: Boneiru) is an island in the Leeward Antilles in the Caribbean Sea. Together with Aruba and Curaçao, it forms the group known as the ABC islands, located less than a hundred miles off the north coast of South America near the western part of Venezuela. Unlike much of the Caribbean region, the ABCs lie outside the hurricane belt. The islands have an arid climate, which helps tourism, as visitors to the islands can reliably expect warm, sunny weather. Bonaire is a popular destination for scuba divers, and it is also well known for easy access to its various reefs from the shore.Show on map
