Seru Largu Outdoor Market Located by the old pier in Kralendijk, a Roman style building offers a selling place to Venezuelans who come by boat to sell their fruit and vegetables. When the cruise ships are in port there is also a craft market located in the nearby Wilhelmina Park with local items that can be purchased as souvenirs. A breath-taking view can be enjoyed from this look out point. On Seru Largu, the “large hill”, you will be treated to the beautiful sight of the city of Kralendijk and the little island of Klein Bonaire. A monument with the Papiamentu inscription “Kristu Ayera Awe Semper” which means “Christ, Yesterday, Today and Forever” is located at the top of this hill which is an interesting sight. This location attracts many visitors, and locals also journey to the top of the mountain to enjoy the view and fireworks display that takes place here to welcome every new year.
