Shallow water and steady breezes make this a windsurfing paradise. Two windsurfing rental companies are available and both have restaurants. The restaurant at Bonaire Windsurf Place is less crowded and serves a nice lunch. Sand for the floor, but good fare. Owing to the roped off areas to protect the sea grass, there's not much area available for swimming. Nevertheless,... More

Had a great lunch at this restaurant. It is a more upmarket in comparison to the other beach bars at Sorobon. Expect a nice menu, starter, main and dessert + great interior (inside). The look of the terrace is 'minimalistic'. Maybe some of the interior design can be taken outside?

We had a wonderful time with a great lunch and fun on the sandy beach. Great for kids - the waves are small and the water not very deep. Great for sand castles.

Being that we are not kite boarders or windsurfers and didn't have the time to learn, we were just observers. It was great watching all of the talented wind warriors cutting it up in the surf. Well worth the trip down to the south-east end of the island just to watch.

If you are into windsurfing, either as master or beginner this is a wonderful place, with clear waters, lots of wind and flat water

2 restaurants with lounge chairs for those who want to watch. Lac Bay is waist deep at most making it perfect for windsurfing. Great to sit back and watch others windsurf when finished.

It is always fun to go over to Lac to see the amazing gymnastics of the people who do this sport. Visitors can have a meal while watching the bay, or you can just stand by for a while. Unless you're actively involved there isn't much to do, but if you haven't been there it is worth a stop!

Not the best experience,most of the beach was roped off to allow the sea grass to regrow. Only accessible part was in front of the commercial area,what a surprise. Walk to the headland left of the shops for free sunshade.Would not repeat this experience.
