Drive there on Sundays to see more activity and the children learning how to windsurf. Nice beach bar near the rental store. Hang out as long as you want. Large sandy beach, free parking also there.

We love hanging out here!!!! We loved just grabbing something to drink and hanging out in the water. The day will fly by because you are enjoying yourself so much.

It looked like the windsurfers were having a blast. I'm just there to lay around and they charge for chairs and the beach isn't great for walking. I'd rather chill at my hotel than pay here...

Shallow water makes learning to windsurf here wonderful. Fall off-- because you are going to-- and step back on! A lot easier! Great bar-- cold beer and good service-- when you are through playing!

I am not a sun or sand lover. However, Lac Bay has overwhelmingly changed my feelings about sun and sand. It is absolutely beautiful! The moment I stepped into the water I knew that Lac Bay was where I was supposed to be. Beautiful and breathtaking are the words that come to mind. Soft sand with water that is clear... More

We were staying at Divi Resort and rented a scooter to travel around the island. We ended up going to Lac Bay twice. Each time was great. The beach and water is one of a kind. The beach bar will serve you at your chairs and they had live music when we went. Definitely recommend this for families and singles... More

Words cannot really describe this beach which goes out about a mile like a big swimming pool 3-4 feet deep. Wind surfers look like colorful trinkets zipping by on their beginner to advances boards. We were here 14 years ago and the place is much upgraded with small lodging units spread all over the beach. This is a young peoples... More

This is the place to learn how to windsurf -- windsurf Bonaire on Lac Bay north of Jive City. Incredibly nice people and skilled coaches. Go for them and the shallow, sandy, warm waters!
