“Fantastic colours & windsurfing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 14, 2013

The colours of the water and the windsurfers make this a must for photography. It can get very busy at the weekend as Sunday is family day so everyone is here for picnics & bbq's.

“A must do on Bonaire”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 12, 2013

Kayak & snorkel the mangroves, then spend the afternoon at Jibe City - lunch on the beach, then try windsurfing in the bay - or relax and just watch everyone else. What a cool spot.

“Love it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 10, 2013

Lac Bay is the best place to windsurf! Beginner, intermediate, or advanced, Lac Bay is just the best! It has flat water, onshore winds, shallow water, not boats, no kiters, just consistent onshore winds! What could be better?

“Pretty but little snorkeling to be found”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 2, 2013

When it wasn't swarmed with cruise-ship passengers, I enjoyed time spent here. The beach isn't very wide, but it's long enough to walk and if you continue walking down away from the businesses, you have a nice area to swim with fewer crowds. Otherwise I'd recommend entering the water from the Sorobon's boardwalk - far fewer people. The water is way to shallow to swim in, but if you walk about 3 NYC blocks in this thigh-deep water (careful to avoid windsurfers coming at you from all directions), you come to deeper water and the reef. However, I didnt find the snorkeling there to be too exciting. Still it was the warmest water we found on the island, and the restaurant next to Jibe City is a nice place for a quick bite (again avoid cruise ship days at all costs). A chair will cost you $5 for the day to rent.
