Driving along the west coast beach by the airport all week, I've noticed a whole lot of temporary structures being build and tents up.. The whole stretch of beach is pretty much taken over. Anyone know what that's about?

yep...it's an Easter tradition. The land grab starts early on in the week with the population peaking for the weekend. The only vacant spots are in line with the end of the runway. Tolo (Ol' Blue) and Karpata have some happy campers as well for the Holiday

It has been the custom for locals to get close to nature and camp during Easter Vacation. Since most of the beaches have be walled off or have resorts on them the local folks "take over" their share of real estate for a short time. You are more than welcome to use the beaches and it is a good time to interact with the Bonaireans. They are always friendly and all you need do is wave, smile and say BON PASKU (catchall meaning happy holiday) and you have made a new friend...
