We arrived in Bonaire via our cruise and decided to take a visit to Lac Bay. Although a beautiful little beach area, it does cater to wind surfing as the water is quite shallow. This is not a place to go and swim, as there are numerous wind surfers in the water. It's a great place to check off your... More

I went to The Lac to watch the wind surfers and relax on my non-dive day before flying. The views over there were beautiful. Not great for swimming (super shallow and you will be in the wind surfers way) but it's a must see. It's only a short drive from Kralendijk.

That gorgeous turquoise water, knee deep way out into the bay and constant winds make it perfect for wind surfing. Jibe city provides clean restrooms, comfy chairs in the sun and in shade, and food worth a drive for, even if you aren't ninterested in the beach. Three days we had lunches that were truly excellent.mbar had nice smoothies and... More

Oh my... If you're diving in Bonaire and need some down time, one of the best places to go is Lac Bay. While there are several facilities and businesses there, we hovered around Jibe City and the Hang Out. We've been to Bonaire before, so we opted out of the kidney-punching ride through Washington-Slagbaai National Park. Instead, we headed to... More

Huge bay shallow, great kite boarding and sea life. If you go to Bonaire, this is a must see, the sorbon resort is lovely and this is one of the best beaches in Bonaire, remember beaches are few in Bonaire go here.

Never saw anything like this before. Its beautiful turquoise water only about 2 feet deep in the entire bay. Perfect for the Windsurfing that takes place there.

Lac Bay is a very unique spot on Bonaire. For one, it's one of the only places you'll find white sand and palm trees. The entire bay is only 3 to 5 feet deep so you can wade out for hundred of yards. It's a fun spot to try windsurfing or just watch the pros!

I was staying on the west side of the island for diving. One late afternoon my husband and I drove over to Lac Bay to check out the windsurfing. It is a gorgeous bay and not far from the west side. We sat on beach chairs at the beach hut and had beers while watching the windsurfers zip by. The... More

Wonderful laid back vibe for a relaxing lunch watching the windsurfers.. Food was good, my favorite being the smoked salmon sandwich but the people make the scene
