Amazing shades of blue

We LOVE Lac Bay. The colors of the water are unreal. Go grab a drink at the Beach Hut at Sorobon Beach and relax in one of their lounge chairs just on the water's edge.

If you're not, the mangroves are still beautiful (you can do a kayak tour through it) but other than that you won't be happy to stay here more than one day. The resorts/lodges are pretty basic, have a typical surfer look&feel and cater to a very select audience.

This bay has the "straight out of a tropical island dream" look. White sands and the most beautiful color of blue water that I ever saw. The view over the bay is just spectaculair. You can rent a sunbed and just relax. This is THE place in Bonaire to go windsurfing. If there is alot of wind you can watch... More

Bonaire for a tropical island comes across arid and dry which one exception, Lac Bay. I have been around the world and this bay was simply amazing. Waist high waters in the lagoon with surrounding bars, it was a nice end of the day retreat. Highly recommend going here!

yes, there is actually a (free) sandy beach on Bonaire here at Lac Bay. It has some trash on it and has a few shelters were wind surfers sleep, but the water is generally calm and the sand is nice. But this is heaven if you wind surf as there is usually a constant wind, relatively flat water, and shallow... More

A local told as we could find turtle here. You need a map to get there but it's a nice drive and even the dirt road is good. We passed lots of pink flamingos and got some great pics even while respecting their space and staying on the road. The beach is sandy with lots of turtle grass. I saw... More

We spend our entire day here windsurfing and watching windsurfing. Mesmerizing to see. Water is warm, shallow, safe. Even the barracuda is friendly!

Multiple people told my husband and I that there is no better place to learn winsurfing than Lac Bay. The Bay is beautiful and unlike any other water destination I've ever visited.
