Swinging in a hammock on a pristine white beach and listening to the lap of the waves on the beach is about as good as it’s going to get this fall. But you’re not going to find it in Utah. So when you get tired of the encroaching cold, take a direct flight from the SLC International Airport straight to the Flamingo Airport for a week in paradise.
You can look up flights here. Just put SLC in the from field and BON in the to field.
If you’re looking for a great getaway this fall, book your week stay now at the Harbour Village Beach Club on the island of Bonaire in the Dutch Antilles. This amazing resort has ocean front suites with private access to silky, white beaches and clear waters full of fluorescent fish.
Go geocaching in the landscape or diving in the ocean. Between the land and the sea, there’s never a dull moment for the kids on this island. And don’t miss out on the tropical butterfly farm and the flamingo nesting grounds, which are sure to astound any child, not to mention your own inner child.
Or are you hoping to leave the kids at home and reconnect with your honey? This place has got you covered. Hit the waters for a swim and then brush up your tennis skills at the resorts private courts. Enjoy a candle-lit dinner on the beach or an aromatherapy couple’s massage. After a fun-filled day, snuggle up together in a double hammock and let the crash of the waves send you to sleep.
Whether you’re there for romance or for a family vacation, there’s one thing you won’t want to miss out on: the diving. If you’re a snorkler, the clear waters will still let you see deep into the ocean from the surface. But if you’re a little bit more adventurous, take a midnight dip deep into the ocean and take advantage of the resorts’s unique fluorescence night diving. With UV light, you can see the rainbow colors emitted by the coral and sea life below.
“Guests tell us they are amazed by the variety of sea life around the island,” says Muriel Spychala, manager of Great Adventures Bonaire. “Some describe it as being like swimming in an aquarium with so many different fish... Kids expecially like telling us about the curious angel fish, parrot fish, flounder, manta rays, cow fish, and eels that they saw on their dive.”
