Beach by the Stoke truck is Te AmoFood Trucks
There are 4 clustered along a fairly short stretch of the southern sites. All are cash only and can make you a single or double cheese burger. Here they are, in order, distinguished by what you can get with that burger.

- Stoked Food Truck – A red double-decker bus. They have potato wedges.
- Kite City Food Truck – They include plain chips with the burger. View attachment 711144
- Cactus Blue Food Truck – At the Corporal Meiss dive site, just south from Windsock. They offer packaged branded chips (I had Doritos – and it wasn’t the smallest size personal bag, either). They emphasize offering lion fish, but that a lion fish burger or wrap isn’t likely to serve as a full meal.
- King Kong Food Truck – At Bachelor’s Beach. They have fries!
I never met a food truck I didn’t like. A double cheese burger and chips or fries tended to run around $18 - $20 or so, cash (I had my own drinks).
Historically I considered beach goers out of luck with Bonaire; there’s a little beach to either side of the pier at Sand Dollar (better) and Den Lamen (rockier), a small one at the Bachelor’s Beach dive site (you have to go down a natural rocky ‘ladder’ to reach it), and a few others. But standing at Stoked Food Truck, I saw this:

That doesn’t look bad! I see underwater masses I’d want to check for fire coral if I were bringing a little kid, but still, that’s a usable beach. Bachelor’s Beach (below) is a dive site and beach all in one (plus there’s a food truck!).

My cheap little insulated cooler with freezable cold packs used to take a few canned sodas with me, that had a tube of sunscreen in a side pocket, went missing after a dive at Weber’s Joy up north. Parking was roadside and small, with a lot of shrubbery around, so an easy target. The Jeff Davis site looks similar, and there was finely broken glass (which is why we leave doors unlocked and windows down). Settle in your mind that you can let it go before you take such things, and if your number comes up…let it go.
