Kralendijk is a small port in Bonaire, a small island governed by the Netherlands. The quiet attractiveness of the island is reflected in the faces of it's inhabitants. From the first inhabitants, the Caiquetios who sailed from the coast of Venezuela almost 1000 years ago, to the numerous cultures now living and working in Bonaire today. Tourism was born when the island government assembled the first ship's pier in the harbor. It allowed cruise ships to tie up alongside the wharf and discharge passengers. It also made it easier to bring in goods and supplies for the island's people. Hotels began to spiral up and cater to the early visitors who enjoyed the harmony of Kralendijk. In 1943, the construction of a modern airport south of Kralendijk made it even easier for tourists to get to the island.
