Sorobon Beach Naturist Resort

Bonaire's au naturel beauty

In direct contrast to the arid, dry, scrubby island of Bonaire, stands the oasis of the Sorobon Beach Naturist Resort. Palm trees, coral waters, lushly planted vines and greenery at Sorobon break the monotony of the Bonaire dryness. Add gentle trade winds off the Caribbean and the heat is managable.

Sorobon Beach Naturist ResortSorobon Beach Naturist ResortThe Sorobon Beach Naturist Resort is the only nude beach on the island of Bonaire- private, protected and natural. The bay in which it is situated is protected by a natural barrier reef of coral and sand that moderates the waves from the Caribbean Sea. They characterize their resort as "unspoiled, unhurried, unclothed, unforgettable!" Visiting this resort, we agree! As with the Orient Beach Resort, it is situated beside a clothed beach, but amazingly the busyness of that beach area does not spill over to the Sorobon.

Dockside RelaxationDockside RelaxationTogether Gogirlfriend and I spent a half-day enjoying the quiet and beautiful beach of the Sorobon Beach Naturist Resort ... unclothed, of course! We walked hand-in-hand out ½ km to the corral reef breakwater revelling in the sun on our skin and the peacefulness of the waves. We enjoyed time sunning on the floating rafts and checked out the nicely cultivated grounds. We partook of Polar beer sitting waist-deep in the Caribbean bay while the stresses melted away.

Amenities and Activities

Sorobon's amenities include beach shelters and lounges along it's 200m of sandy beachfront, 30 chalets of one and two-bedroom options, a sitting terrace, and Sugarbird restaurant with chef Simon. The food offered is mixed Mediterranean to BBQ and accommodates vegetarian requests. The entire area is palm-tree lined with Caribbean flowers and plants to set the area.

Sorobon ActivitiesSorobon ActivitiesWe chose to relax and be together au naturel in the sunshine and beautiful sea-blue waters, but they also offer snorkeling, kayaks for two, pier and sunning rafts, windsurfing, and a weekly nude catamaran cruise. Their salon offers massage and yoga lessons and they have a small library for reading in many languages with games like jeu de boules and Petanque.

This is not a five-star Sandy Lane (Barbados) resort, but a beautiful relaxing oasis of Caribbean charm to enjoy clothing-optional relaxation to recharge your batteries au naturel. We certainly did!

If you enjoy au naturel beaches and resorts, we'd love to hear from you and the favorite places you've visited. Follow us on Facebook and Twitter or drop us a line.

[Sub-note: As of December 2010, we are told by the management that this resort will sadly be no longer clothing-optional, but a clothed resort. I have to admit that clothing-optional locations are becoming harder and harder to find across the Caribbean, where the freedom should be expanding rather than disappearing.]

Being a vegetarian, it is often hard to find places that cater to that type of dietary preference. Thanks for the heads up on another new paradise.

Time spent at a resort helps us to take a rest and get relaxed smelling the breeze of fresh air away from pollution and busy environment. I love visiting new resorts. Thanks for the article.

If you can't stand the heat... get out of your clothes. The only thing in the way of happiness is these damn clothes. Clothing is optional
