Slave Huts at Orange Pan, Kralendijk

#1 of 7 in Historic Sites in Bonaire
The cramped and inhumane conditions at Slave Huts at Orange Pan continue to serve as a grim but important historical lesson. Built in 1850 and scattered along the coast, these small huts served as bedrooms and a place to store belongings while the Dutch colony's slaves were working on the salt fields, separated from their families. You can easily visit on a self-guided tour, as informational plaques next to the huts provide insight into the life of the slaves in the Caribbean.

  • Very interesting. The huts are right along the main road. They are quite small and housed 6 slaves each. They seem to be kept well preserved. They are also right at the edge of the water on the beach.
