Just to the south of Den Laman and Sand Dollar Condos in Bonaire lies an old pier that has sunken into the water.  This old pier is now home to a plethora of colorful fish, coral and sea creatures.  This site, just in shore from Bari Reef, is aptly named The Aquarium.

At a depth of 10 feet (3 m), The Aquarium is a great site for shore snorkeling.  I also dove this site several times and found that it was a great place to test new camera gear or new techniques.
