South Island Electric Bike
Explore Bonaire in an easy way while getting a little exercise too. Get up close and personal with this beautiful island when you ride through and explore the south side, one of the most beautiful parts to see. On an electric bike you can exercise without getting completely exhausted. Your bike will help you go around the island while you view amazing sights with a guide who will lead you to numerous sights for you to discover with stops to take pictures and to rest.
Your tour will start right from the pier where we will prepare your bike to ﬁt your needs. All participants are given a helmet and a bottle of water. Once you are comfortable on your bike you will start your electric bike tour heading south. You will start on a very safe road towards Plaza Beach Resort and then head to Flamingo Airport, the beautiful pink airport of Bonaire, then continue south and pass Belnem, the emblematic neighborhood once owned by Harry Bellafonte.
Your ﬁrst stop will be at the salt pier where you are given some information about the salt process, and you will have the chance to take some amazing pictures at the color contrast of the turquoise Caribbean Sea and the pink water of the salt pans.
After you are refreshed, continue further south to the white slave huts. Make another stop to learn about the history that surrounds these little houses and about the weekly migration of the slaves. A little further ahead you will also get to see the red slave huts and after passing them you will make a third stop at one of the 5 lighthouses of Bonaire. Willemstoren lighthouse was completely renovated in 2012 and it is located at the southern end of Bonaire.
After the lighthouse stop, continue to see one of the most famous spots of Bonaire, Sorobon. Stop at the beach hut beach bar and enjoy a complimentary drink while taking in the views of Bonaire's world famous windsurfers doing their impossible pirouettes in the air. After about 15 minutes of relaxing begin your way back to Kralendijk through the mangrove area. Because the bikes are silent there are great chances to spot ﬂamingos along the way, if you are lucky to see some you can stop for pictures from a safe distance as not to disturb them.
Please Note: Your tour includes your electric bike, bottled water and 1 complimentary drink at The Beach Hut.

The electric assist bicycle was a great way to see the island. We had done a bus tour on a previous trip, so this was a completely different perspective. Our guide was very knowledgeable with a good sense of humor and he shared some behind the scenes places one would never see on another tour.
Enjoyed the scenic ride. Would do it again... and we came home and bought electric bikes. Be cautious with drizzles as roadway becomes slick.
Great bike tour on Bonnaire. Bikes were well maintained and fit to each person. Extra batteries were brought along and changed out when needed. Tour was a little fast; would have liked more time to site see. Very personable tour guide and his mom! Would try this excursion again!

What a wonderful way to explore the island! The electric bike took off the resistance so that we could enjoy the beauty of the southern shore outdoors. It was quite windy that day and we wouldn't have been able to push through it traveling the 25 miles. It was fascinating seeing the salt flats and the slave huts. Our guide led the way in his truck, ensuring that we were all safe, our bikes were in working order and that we learned about his beautiful island.

We enjoyed the tour very much. Sam was very knowledgeable and paid close attention to everyone in the group to make sure they were having a good time. The group size was small (6) which made it nice
