For a chance to observe these beautiful and unusual looking birds in their natural habitat, take a trip to Pekelmeer Flamingo Sanctuary, and drive around its picturesque shores. The birds have a lot of protected space here to catch and eat the pink shrimp they feed on, and the lake offers many great photo opportunities. Flamingos are here in abundance, and from January to July the lake is home to upwards of 15000 birds. Bring your binoculars to get a better view of the birds.

Pekelmeer Flamingo Sanctuary Reviews
Just be careful as flamingos don't really like people to stand so close to them... see them in their habitat. Cuidado pq los flamingos no les gusta mucho que se les acerquen... more »
It appears a lot of reviews here confused this south of the island lake with the one in the northwest of Bonaire called Lake Goto (Gotomeer); both great road trip stops and both providing nice views..... more »
The sanctuary is great for flamingos but for humans, it's not much to see. You're likely to see more close up driving on the far size of Lac Bay near the Mangrove center.
Great place to watch flamingo
