Not much in the way of facilities. Nice beach. Lots of conch. Don't want to miss it if you go to the island.

The warmth and depth of the water (90, hip deep all the way to the breakers) was an experience all it's own. Beautiful spot.

I may be a little biased, as this is the place for my proposal. Amazing view, shallow waters to lounge in (if you go further there is snorkeling available), and perfect for a sun-kissed day to relax! Water is clear, sand is powdery for the most part. This place holds a special place in my heart and I can't wait... More

We had amazing food, service, views & swimming in Lac Bay. We spent an entire afternoon here. You can snorkel, swim, wind surf, and wade in the water waist deep for over 100 yards. The water was crystal clear with a sandy bottom. Worth the trip out to this remote area!!!

So much fun kayaking and snorkeling in Lac Bay. I totally recommend this 1/2 day outing. Paul was our guide and he was great.

A really nice place to have a picnic or enjoy the windsurfers. There are several shelters to get out of the sun and there are rest rooms available.

IT's a great place to have lunch and watch the wind surfers practice and the new comers give it a shot. Beautiful views of the bay. Great food to be found.

Was glad to finally find a simple beach in Bonaire. To bad they have so little since the last storms. But what they still have is amazing and very heavenly...you can walk a whole very far in the ocean and also just relax to see others windsurf. Love it...

Just got back from Bonair and went exclusively to windsurf in Lac Bay. It's the most beautiful place and such good conditions I've went to windsurf so far! Shallow and transparent water, good and steady winds on about 25nots, good structure at Jibe City and Windsurf place. If you love windsurf do not miss this!!!

It is a must go to place. It's a little bit far and maybe you will need to rent a pickup but when you get there, you will find this place amazing. Great nature views, fresh sea breezes and sometimes you can even spot the turtles. This is also a historic place, here you can see the old conch shells... More
