Bonaire has a stunning position on a peninsular between the Bay of Pollensa and the Bay of Alcudia. It is surrounded by 2 sandy beaches and a nature reserve that leads to La Victoria, a former monastery that’s been converted into a restaurant and hotel. Bonaire has remained a laid back, small resort with a lovely marina surrounded by bars and restaurants. Located within easy reach of the picturesque Old Town, sandy beach and popular port area of Alcudia, you can enjoy the best of both worlds on your Majorcan villa holiday.
There is a mini market in Bonaire, within a 5 minute drive. For serious shoppers, the Old Town of Alcudia has a market on Tuesdays and Sundays and plenty of boutiques where you can find plenty of local produce. The Alcudia Marina has a nightly craft market (May to Sept) where you can buy trinkets and artisan products to remember your Majorcan holiday.
Around the harbour in Bonaire, there are a couple of smart restaurants offering international cuisine and a chill out bar for sunset cocktails. Visit the Old Town of Alcudia to try authentic tapas or wander around the port where you will discover a larger selection of restaurants and bars with menus designed to suit all budgets. For a special occasion, take a night off from cooking at your villa and pay a visit to La Victoria’s restaurant for dinner on the terrace with a spectacular view, just 5 minutes’ drive from Bonaire.
Bonaire’s 2 sandy beach coves of Es Mal Pas are a well-kept secret and have crystal clear waters, ideal for snorkelling, kayaking and diving.
