Lac Bay is really awesome! With the windsurfers zipping around. You can also take lessons there. Stand Up Paddle boards are also for rent there. The bay is shallow and perfect for trying these activities. Water is calm even though you are on the windy side of the island. It is a scenic drive to get there. You can also... More

Enjoyed watching everyone trying to windsurf. The restaurant is nice and the chase lounges are nice to spend the day. The water color is so nice and inviting. Another must do while on Bonaire.

Down a dirt track which was muddy after the rain, but worth the side trio to see the likes of conch shells

Great place to hang out, even as a non-surfer. Coasy chairs and nice staff in the beachbar. For windsurfers THE place to go on bonaire!

Worth the drive across the island to the "windy" side. The lagoon is shallow and wonderfully warm and the perfect place to learn to windsurf. Nice restaurant and bar too.

Impressed with the wind surfing. Not much for snorkeling but if that is your interested in try the other side, Lac Cai. We were able to see and snorkel with turtles several times.

This is probably the coolest place we visited on the island. Water temp is so nice. The depth is only waist high even when you go for a twenty minute walk out in the water. Crystal clear water. Enjoy the wind surfers or try it yourself. This is a must see when in Bonaire.

This is great place to watch the windsurfers. There is a great little bar and grill right on the water. Nice break from diving.

A fun day trip while we were diving at Bonaire. We stayed at Buddy Dive and made several day trips to different parts of the island. A great drive and some really good lunch spots.
