Near the northwestern shore, the peak is a good place to take in the sweep of the island and the curve of the Caribbean horizon.

It is recommended that you climb this Mountain before noon in order to make it back through the park. It's along the long road. We started out at 11:55 am. We used walking sticks and were glad we did. It's a rough and steep climb...More

Don't go here on your flip flops, you will not make it to the summit and the walk will be dangerous. The walk is sometimes steep, take care of the sharp cactus pins on the way and you have to be in a good condition....More

Nice hike to the top. Make sure you wear sensible footwear (no flip flops) as other people have mentioned the last bit is quite rough.

This was a lot of fun but it wasn't a hike at all. The first part of the trail is along the road. That's about as close to a hike as you get. Once you start to climb up the mountain, there is no trail...More

Didn't really plan the shoes for this walk, and one of the teenage daughters had flipflop which didn't work out and we had to return when the climb got really steep. But the views were magnificent where we were anyhow!

This is a great hike, but it is not for the faint of heart! The trail does start off relatively easy. Obviously, since you are going up a mountain, it gets steeper as you go. I expected that, of course. What I did not expect...More

This is the highest point on Bonaire. The hike is about 4 miles round trip. Most of the trail is easy walking but the last 1/4 mile involves some scrambling. Adequate foot wear is a must. Don't do this in sandals. Go early in the...More

Brandaris was an excellent climb! At the beginning the path meanders over some lower hills through the desert landscape and then you pass you a gate which keeps the goats out and you begin the real hike. The last part of the climb is over...More

We have been coming to Bonaire for 17 years and have never hiked Brandaris. A lot of people that we know that have lived on the island haven't either. Well, it was pretty easy at first but as you get to the bottom of the...More

We were not able to actually hike at the park because, although we arrived before 14:00 (2pm) knowing that they wouldn't let cars go into the park after that hour, we were after 12:00, which is apparently the cut-off if you want to drive in...More
