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.

Nice cold beers, good food from the Beach Hut and an an excellent view. Really enjoyed the chicken saute with peanut sauce :). Overall spent a really nice afternoon just relaxing on the beach, wish we had more time to try the windsurfing. It seemed like a lot of fun. Place is really good if you have kids and teenagers,...

Beautiful shallow bay shared by walkers and windsurfers. Make sure you go on a day with wind if you want to windsurf.

Shallow, windy, inland bay-like beach area. Perfect for Wind surfing, with fun bars with lots of lounge chairs and bar tables plunked down smack dab in the sand. But that's it. Go for those 2 things, nothing else.
