About Belmar Oceanfront Apartments
This is one of Bonaire’s most relaxed small resorts, with an outstanding selection of dive and stay packages and easy to arrange extras like rental cars and guided excursions around the island. Belmar is located in a quiet residential area, with a beautiful beach and numerous tourist facilities just a few minutes walk from the front gate. You’ll also find shopping, dining, and drinking options right down the road - and all of the northern and southern dive sites on the leeward side of the island a short drive away.
Each of Belmar’s beautiful oceanfront apartments boasts contemporary furnishings and an upbeat island ambience. These spotlessly clean spaces are ideal for families and groups, with optional interconnecting floor plans and accessible first-floor spaces just steps from the sea. No matter which apartment you choose, you’ll enjoy breathtaking ocean views with a chance to spot the green flash - a meteorological phenomenon that takes place just as the setting sun hits Bonaire’s horizon. This small resort also offers a number of relaxing outdoor spaces, a waterfront pool area, sun deck and lounge, and spacious terraces in all of its 22 rooms.
