Bari reef seems to be a popular one. We stayed in the Den Laman, just infant of this reef. It is easily accessible and you can find plenty of fish, there is a large parking lot for those coming from other places and easily accessible beach access.

Always a good experience diving the Bari Reef. Easy in and out. You can jump off the pier or use the ladder to get in. Lots to see around 40-70 ft.

This nice dive site. Easy to park. Easy entry into the water into sand. We saw an octopus when we were last there. No bathroom facilities.

We dove this site 3 times during our week stay. Entry is easy and it was right by our resort. Definitely had the most night life of the 17 sites we dove. This was my favorite. My husband's favorite was the Salt Pier. Dive both of these sites at night, they are wonderful sites!

Bari Reef, like much of Bonaire, has fine diving and snorkeling. Access is pretty easy and well marked. New divers often come here to practice getting in and out at a shore location.

Bari reef was right in front of our condo. We dove it multiple times including a couple night dives. Many varieties of small fish, schools of fish, squid & tarpons

Dived this reef off of Sand Dollar condo. Best fish life of any reef we dived on a recent trip. Not so much from a variety perspective but just the abundance.

The diving is great, lots of eels and easy entry and exit. Very nice restaurant next to the public dive site. Sand dollar has an even better facility for entry and exit, but recently they started charging for the use.

Very easy entrance from Eden Beach. Saw lots of fish. Wanna dive is right there if you need to rent gear. Really enjoyed it. There is a shelf or two where fish hang out.
