Wonderful site for diving

We were on Bonaire for a week, dove 15 times, and 8 of our dives were on this reef. Starts at 30 feet, and goes to over 100 feet, but plenty to see between 30-60 feet!

Great house reef for Den Laman Condos and Sand Dollar. Very nice to access from the pier, although the general use beach access seems like an easy entry as well.

Dove a number of dive site while on vacation and did not have a bad one. Bari was up there with them with a very nice reef system, lots of fish and nice coral formations. Hard to go wrong with any of them.

When I dove (due my lung collapse twice in the water) every dive I made was on Bari reef due to very good dive shop. Also, before a storm there was the best restaurant on the island GREEN PARROT. JIm and Sarah made you very comfortable and allowed divers to sit stand and BS about their daily diving.

We entered the water at the Den Laman Condominiums. There is a big empty lot where you can park your car. The Den Laman sign is big enough to see from the round-about. You will see an old stone structure near the water. There is a faded yellow sign with white stenciled letters spelling "Bari Reef Entry" with and arrow... More

Looking for a place to learn how to dive? Look no further than Bari Reef. It's sandy beach or elevated dock (with steps) offer easy points of entry, while the near pristine reef offers hundreds of species of marine life to look at. Common sightings include: Octopi, Squid, Tarpon, Frog Fish, many varieties of eels, turtles.

Several species of fish plus and easy entry exit makes this a great dive! Close to nice restaurants for surface interval too!

lots of things to see at this site, easy entry and close to places to eat too. There are a couple sunken boats to the south and lots of reef critters to the north.

Good diving, clear water, shore accessible. Warm water, shorties all that is necessary, more for sun protection than for temperature.

We have dived the Bari Reef before and although it is a very convenient location for access and parking, the reef is showing more and more wear. My recommendation is go south from the beach entry, towards Front Porch. The beginning of the dive won’t be too pretty but wait, as you get further south it gets very pretty. Just... More
