Nice Place to spend the day

Food is what it is but the location is awesome for wind surfing paddle boarding and kayaking. Plenty of beer and shade to keep you cool. Had an awesome day here.

Many people go to Lac Bay to windsurf, but it is a great place to eat lunch and just hang out on the beach as well (not to mention that it offers one of the few true sand beaches on the island). Many people are not aware that it can be a good snorkeling spot if the water is calm.... More

Lac bay, who comes to Bonaire without visiting this conch shell site. Surrounded by mangrove trees and the ocean and the sea breeze you will get a touch of Nature. Lac is highly visited on Sundays, where there is live music by a Trio. There is also the opportunity to buy food there at the beach or you can bring... More

The kids had wind surfing lessons and then spent an hour on their own, very reasonably priced. The restaurant was reasonable priced and the lounge chairs in the shade and sun were very comfortable. Great place to spend time!!

Wind and surf beach is the place to go if you want to check out the windsurfers or try some windsurfing yourself! The beach is very shallow and the water is quite warm. This is a great place for families with small children. It's a great place for others as well. There are places to eat, restrooms, and shops for... More

Perfect place for beginners to learn to how to windsurf. Moderate breeze, shallow bay. More experienced sailors might get bored, but then there is always fantastic coral reefs for snorkeling or scuba.

Lovely beach with nice casual bar/restaurants. Water is knee deep out to the reef, about 1/2 mile. Major site on the island for wind surfing.

It doesn't get more laid back than here. Surfschool and nice restaurant all watching over a pristine lake with all-year round optimal windsurfing conditions.

This bay is absolutely beautiful. So relaxing. Some of our family took a windsurfing lesson. We hung out on some lounge chairs and had lunch and some drinks. Nice afternoon. Must see in Bonaire.
