We’re Not Just About Diving!
Most of our guests come to enjoy the Sand Dollar waterfront condominium complex because of the incredible access our property offers for diving and snorkeling along with some of the islands most comfortable and reasonably priced ocean front apartments.
Combine the enjoyment of what feels like your own private home with a list of both on-property and neighborhood amenities, and you will soon see why the Sand Dollar condominium complex is an especially popular repeat destination for couples, families, and groups seeking value and relaxation!
The waterfront condominium complex is located just 5 miles/8 km away from Bonaire’s Flamingo International Airport, and only 2 miles/3.2 km north of downtown Kralendjik. Just close enough to reach downtown in a matter of minutes, but far enough away to feel like you have escaped from it all.
To gain a better understanding of our ideal location on Bonaire, just view the Google Map below. Whether your excursions take you north or south, our central location makes Sand Dollar the ideal starting place!
Independent living supported by an on-site management team
Unlike many rental apartments on Bonaire, the Sand Dollar condominium complex maintains an on-site management team ready and willing to assist should you need them as well as helpful reception staff on duty every day from 8:00 am – noon and from 01.00 – 5:00 pm, and private security on duty from 6:00 pm to 7:00 am.
The property offers convenient parking directly in front of your condo – no long walks carrying groceries and lugging dive gear from a far away parking lot for Sand Dollar guests!
The Sand Dollar condominium complex has an expansive waterfront, and we have made sure that no matter which condominium you are staying in, seaside retreats and ocean access are within easy reach. You can lounge on one of the sun decks then descend one of the sturdy ladders for a quick ocean dip or some world class snorkeling. A fresh water shower is located seaside at each of the two sun decks for a quick rinse when you are done. There is also a communal grill available for your use along the seaside.
Sand Dollar has a small sandy area we call our “beachette” where divers, snorkelers and swimmers can wade in from the shore. There is also additional shaded and open seating areas along this stretch of the waterfront.
This is an ideal location to share an afternoon snack, or to gather for a front row seat to watch the sunset over Klein Bonaire. And yes – if there are no cloud on the horizon, you are very likely to see the green flash!

Sand Dollar’s Natural Beauty
Some of Sand Dollar’s most beautiful attractions are not man-made, but on loan to us from Mother Nature. Our grounds – like much of Bonaire – are rather rustic. However in this more natural state, where bright orange Flamboyant, Bougainvillea, Oleanders and Palm trees are scattered on the grounds, we see any number of colorful bird and butterfly species.
There is even beauty to be found in the shy blue Whiptail lizard that is endemic to Bonaire, and admiration in the antics of the personable green iguanas who lounge on the sea wall.
Sand Dollar Mini-Mall
Along the roadside leading to the Sand Dollar condominium complex is a small shopping complex with some wonderful offerings.
A favorite of everyone’s is the “Between 2 Buns” deli serving delights for breakfast and lunch; Tasty Treat, which serves Lovers Ice Cream and Surinam food, and One-Stop-Shop, a discount store with a little bit of everything!
In Our Neighborhood
Directly across the road from Eddy’s Restaurant is the Bon Bida Spa and Gym offering an enticing menu of pampering massage, manicure and pedicure treatments as well as a modern training facility with state-of-the-art equipment and professional fitness instructors. Guests of Sand Dollar Bonaire can get a discount up to 25% on all fitness and Spa packages if booked through the Front Office of Sand Dollar.
