Go here and chill out while you watch the windsurfers -you won't regret it! A different side of Bonaire for sure!

If you haven't stopped at Lac Bay, you need to. Wish we would have stopped before our last day. A few different beach bars & kite surfing. Water is beautiful!!

For $5 you can get a lounge on a beautiful sandy beach with a bay that you can walk out into and still be only waist deep. Just beautiful. There are eating establishments along the bay also. The cabanas for the guests are basic but it's what you are there for - you are getting away from it all.

Takes awhile to get there but really cool. We went on the mangroves tour and went out there. There are hundreds of conch shells piled up here.

We rent a windsurf board, played a little, swam a little, had a few beers (not necessarily in that order). The water is shallow and warm, it is a good place to hang out and watch the time go by.

We went to Lac Bay after spending the morning kayaking through the Mangroves (with Mangrove Info Centre) on the other side of the bay. You are not allowed to bring your own food in, but we found the food reasonable in the Beach Bar. Tables on the beach (with roof overhead to keep you in the shade) and friendly service.... More

Jibe City is the place to be! Run by friendly Dutch and locals for all your windsurf equipment. Very flexible on the time I was out 'playing' and time not used on the water. Hopefully Ill be back there someday soon.

Our family loved the vibe here! Fun, colorful, excellent place to just relax and our kids actually took windsurfing lessons here. The foot at the cafe was good but most of all the scenery is breathtaking. Just go and relax.

Fantatstic sindsurfing and beautiful. Clear green water as far as you can see. Never more than 4 feet deep and sandy bottom. Great wind. Sorobon Beach Resort looks like a great place to stay as well. Jibe City was attentive to my windsurfing needs.
