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.

This is the main bay at the east side of Bonaire, shielded from the waves by a barrier reef. As it is shallow but with a lot of wind, it is a great place for learning to windsurf as well as great for windsurfers of all kinds. At the side of the bay, there is a lot of mangrove, very... More

After a small tour of the island, we ended up at this beach. It was very crowded but still a lot of fun. The kids really enjoyed snorkeling and setting all the beautiful creatures in the water. My only suggestion is to have an area in the water where the wind surfers can not enter. Some of those guys were... More

A fantastic lagoon, a beautiful beach at the Sorobon resort, trendy hangouts. A place where all your troubles disappear! One thing to know: the wind..... On one side, that's why it is windsurfers paradise, on the other side: in the shadow on the beach, you might get it cold because of the 4-6 bft wind blowing right from the lagoon.... More

The staff who instruct are friendly and fun for the beginner wind surfer. some come and spend the day sun bathing on the beach. Its a great way to spend a surface interval from scuba diving. The fish and chips are fantastic and a great... More

The only thing I did liked was the road to Lac Bay. It was bumpy & uncomfortable. I haven' got anything else to say!
