We spend 2 week in December on Bonaire trying to find a day without too strong wind for 12 year old boy on windsurfing. It is perfect spot with perfect windy weather - most of the time over 12 m/s. Finaly we were happy to spend one day on surf. It was great and we really enjoyed it. There are... More

We went to Lac Bay, Bonaire recently to watch the wind surfers in action while we enjoyed a fresh Mahi Mahi salad and a Tiger Shrimp salad. It was a long drive to Lac Bay but well worth the time to be able to enjoy fresh seafood salads at tables by the bay of the Caribbean Sea. Take the time... More

This is a beautiful bay with warm, shallow, calm and clear waters with predictable winds that makes it an excellent place to learn to windsurf. There are bathrooms, outdoor showers, and two restaurants with pretty decent food and strong drinks.

Not much in the way of facilities. Nice beach. Lots of conch. Don't want to miss it if you go to the island.

The warmth and depth of the water (90, hip deep all the way to the breakers) was an experience all it's own. Beautiful spot.

I may be a little biased, as this is the place for my proposal. Amazing view, shallow waters to lounge in (if you go further there is snorkeling available), and perfect for a sun-kissed day to relax! Water is clear, sand is powdery for the most part. This place holds a special place in my heart and I can't wait... More

We had amazing food, service, views & swimming in Lac Bay. We spent an entire afternoon here. You can snorkel, swim, wind surf, and wade in the water waist deep for over 100 yards. The water was crystal clear with a sandy bottom. Worth the trip out to this remote area!!!

A really nice place to have a picnic or enjoy the windsurfers. There are several shelters to get out of the sun and there are rest rooms available.
