BONAIRE, DUTCH ANTILLES--(Marketwired - Feb 24, 2014) - Plan an unforgettable escape to Harbour Village Beach Club resort, featuring an onsite 5 Star Dive Center offering unmatched undersea adventures for the newest to the most experienced snorkelers and divers. Harbour Village Beach Club is located within an exclusive beachfront enclave on a four-acre, private peninsula on the island of Bonaire, recently voted #1 by readers of Scuba Diving magazine in categories that include:
- Best Shore Diving (Snorkeling)
- Best Beginner Diving
- Best Macro diving
- Best Advanced diving
- Best Underwater Photography
Bonaire was also included in the recent "Best For Families" roundup in Islands magazine, and currently ranks #4 in the publication's list of the "World's Best Island for Snorkeling." These join the island's many other accolades that include its designation as the most pristine coral reef environment and most species of fish in the Caribbean by the NOAA. Due to Bonaire's leeward location outside of the hurricane belt, and its consistently pleasant climate, crystal-clear visibility prevails at any depth, giving an enthralling view of the undersea landscape.
Snorkelers will enjoy sites just off Harbour Village's shore including the shipwreck of the 60-foot "Our Confidence," located just 50 yards out from the beach, while another popular dive site, "Something Special," is also a short swim away. Daily boat dives to numerous sites around the island, dive instruction for all levels including advanced certification and specialties, and equipment rental are all offered to guests at the onsite, 5 Star Great Adventures Bonaire dive center, as are unique programs such as florescence night diving -- incorporating special UV lights to see the astounding array of florescent colors emitted by underwater animals and corals.
Harbour Village Beach Club itself was voted Bonaire's Leading Hotel in the 2013 World Travel Awards, hailed as the "Oscars of the Travel Industry" by the Wall Street Journal.
