Clearbottom Mangrove Kayak & Snorkel tour

88 reviews
Our mangrove glass bottom kayak &amp; snorkel tour begins at the lovely beach from Lac Cai. The Bonaire Mangrove reserve is located in Lac Bay National Park. Visitors can only enter the mangroves in the company of an experienced nature guide. Your stable, glass bottom sit-on-top kayak is equipped with a comfortable backrest seat, a waterproof bag for your personal belongings and, of course, paddles. Off you go, into the calm waters.<br><br>The glass bottom kayak provides an ideal mode of transport in this beautiful and tranquil environment, as you manoeuvre with ease through the mangrove shallows and tunnels.<br><br>Gliding by four different species of mangrove trees in crystal-clear waters, paddling past bird habitats and fish spawning areas, you'll learn of the relationship between the plants and the animals. The snorkel location offers a great variety of marine life and is considered by many a must-do while visiting Bonaire!

The north side of Lac Bay has this quaint little spot that's not very crowded. Very relaxing on the nice beach and calm waters.

We came here as part of a cruise shore excursion and enjoyed how clear the water is and how peaceful this beach is. It's slightly different than most Caribbean beaches but still a fun place to go.

We came here to see the conch stacks to be perfectly honest on our very last day in Bonaire... but had we known there is a nice beach here weI would definitely visit earlier - depending on the tide the water does flood quite a lot, even on the way to the beach from the Mangrove Center (it actually completely flooded a part of the road on the way back and if I not for the fact we drove on it before and saw how it looks dry I would probably freak out a bit as a non-familiar visitor heheh) There is a small beach bar/restaurant called Lac Bay Bar but this is not the touristy type of area like the Lac Bay area by Sorobon/Kite City so I encourage you to bring something with you to drink or eat in case the bar is on "island time" and you can't get anything as the beach is very inviting and provides some nice shallow waters and plenty of shade. Drive carefully while passing the Mangrove Center as there may be some flamingos passing the road or donkeys roaming around! TIP: We visited "on the way" to the Mangrove Center (you will pass MC first, about half way through) as these two locations are about 5 minutes away from each other - the dirt road that takes you to the Mangroves is what you simply continue until the road ends at the Lac Cai Beach - no need for an SUV/turck, passenger car will do it easily TIP: on the way back stop at Mangrove Center even if you don't plan on taking the tour - it's a pretty educating experience and worth a short stop - the closest by food there is Foodies which I highly recommend as well for a great lunch with a view

you will find this beach at lak Bay, on the other side of Sorobon beach. You will need a car to come here. This is mostly a quiet beach, not really a restaurant or washrooms at that moment. Not good for snorkeling but greta for sandy beach. Sometimes when there is cruise ship, there are a lot of tourists. Not a big problem, they will leave after 2 hours. There are people living there and they have dogs which love to play at the beach. But they are really lovely and will not get to you, so no problem. NOT a place fo sunset!
