Pink Beach There may not be much of its pink sand to enjoy, but you can still picnic on the narrow strip of beach. It derived its pink colour from coral, which over time was ground to powdery pink sand by the surf. Relax and enjoy the lovely panoramic view - idyllic! It is also a great location for snorkeling and scuba diving. © Tourism Corporation Bonaire Terramar Museum 7,000 years of history await visitors to this museum, located in the center of Kralendijk.
