Went over to this side of island one afternoon after doing two morning dives. Great beach bar and you can rent a lounger for all day. Did I say--NAPTIME ! Can't beat the view , the serenity or the peacefulness.

You can come here to watch wind surfers or eat. It a fantastic bay that creates ideal conditions for windsurfing. The bay flattens out all the water and sand for probably miles.

One of the few "real" beaches on Bonaire, if you want the sand and sun, this is the place to head. snorkling is good, but it is a 1/3 of a mile through waist deep water to get there. windsurfing is world class, and the food at the beach hut is relaxing and good.

Great spot to hang out. Beautiful water and lots of activity. There are a couple of great little bar/restaurants. You can learn how to windsurf, store your gear or rent equipment, also.

This is a must see part of the island! It is like nothing else - the water is incredible. There are a couple of little beach front restaurants to eat at while you look out over this idyllic scene!

There was a lot of wind, and waves on the horizon... a lot of windsurfers on the water... It was nice to come here and filming the scenery...

So I had to click on the negative reviews since I have no idea how someone could only give lac cai only 2 stars and I think there is some confusion. Lac cai is the entire bay and it includes the windsurfing place which is not really a swimming beach and you really have to swim out far before it's... More

A stunningly beautiful bay, full of windsurfers and rimmed with a few great bars and beach food hang-outs.

Loved kayaking through Lac Bay. It is a series of blue shades dominated by turquoise. I was lucky enough to witness about 15 large sea turtles surfacing in an eight minute period. I was on a guided tour that took us through the mangroves in the area. I do not originate from an area where mangroves are found so I... More
