This was a stop as part of a tour of the island. I seem to remember many more flamingos last time I visited.

Seeing flamingos in the habitat was so cool. The baby ones are pure white and we saw a couple of those. There was probably 50 or so birds in the water, their colors were so bright. Not all are close to the road but there...More

If you love flamingos and want to see them in the wild, then visit the flamingo sanctuary. If you are lucky there will be a few by the road that you can photograph, but you will also see many in the distance.

Gotomeer Lake hosts the flamingo sanctuary. On our visit there were only two birds near shore and maybe another 20 in the distance. Seeing flocks of birds is hit or miss. The sanctuary itself is closed to visitors. You can only see it when driving...More

We passed by here while on the Bonaire Cruisers. They said we could not go in because of it being a sanctuary. There were no trespassing signs everywhere. We were able to just barely see them but they were very very far away.
