7. Bonaire, Netherlands Antilles
There are many Caribbean locations fighting for the right to claim the best island vacations but my choice is Bonaire. Close to Curacao and Aruba, Bonaire is a diving paradise where the waters surrounding the island are a sanctuary of coral reefs teeming with fascinating marine life. There’s plenty of interest away from the shore too. This flat topical island is home to flamingos and iguanas and the salt flats and rock art are definitely worthy.
