  STS075-706-41 Bonaire Island, Netherland Antilles March 1996
Located 50 miles (80 km) north of Venezuela, the semi-desert landscape of Bonaire Island can be seen in this south-looking view. The island of Bonaire lies on top of a volcanic ridge off the coast of South America. The island is 24 miles (39 km) long and is 3-7 miles (5 to 11 km) wide, and covers an area of 112 sq. miles (290 sq. km). The highest elevation of the island is Brandaris Hill at 784 feet (240 meters). The island is fringed with coral reefs. Tourism is one of the most important industries of the island along with the production of sisal and salt. Goats and sheep are also raised. Over 190 species of birds, including roseate flamingos, call Bonaire their home. Diving and snorkeling are two of the most popular recreational sport activities.
