95 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!

There is a stair, but it does not go down completely safe to the small beach. Just 3 more steps would do the trick. Sometimes there is a foodtruck.

We were lucky enough to be at this lovely snorkel spot at the same time as a great ball of Makerel. That was amazing as were flounder, big parrot fish, and spotted moreys. Pretty easy entry down some steps with a railing to a sandy area. Reef was about 50 feet off shore. Good parking.

This beach is great but the beach is very small. The access is down some stairs but easy. The snorkeling there is also good. Plan on spending 1 to 2 hours ice you can find space.

Unlike 1000 steps or the waves and rock hazards of most shore dives, this one features a few solid steps down to the beach. Only the last couple steps were on uneven rock and I didn't have any problem with those. Only Oil Slick Leap has an easier entry, but it's ladder is missing a rung for the exit. Drop off the ledge and you've got great viewing. We did this dive after aborting Red Slave due to a wicked current. There was none perceptible here. Also a nice beach for family floating. Go early Sunday morning and watch locals water jogging and teaching babies to swim. Very family-friendly.

Be careful when you plan to come here, we missed this Beach twice, because from the road there is only the parking space but you will not see the beach itself. To get to the water you have to climb down some stairs. Great for beginner snorkeler, it is so easy to get into the water, no stones just sand at that part. Enjoyed it a lot.
