Only really nice beach on island with restaurant right in beach to get bar type food and drinks. But very family friendly. Avoid days cruise ship in town because it is packed at lac bay.

Beautiful part of the island on the east coast. The Bay is the nursery for pretty much the entire Island and is the hot spot for windsurfing. We caught up with East Coast Divers which operates out of Lac Bay for a 2 tank drift dive. Great place to relax!

We spent our last day at Lac Bay. If you are an expert windsurfer, plenty of room, if you are just a beginner it's easy.

Planned to spend a beach day here, but upon arrival it was not what I expected at all. This is a spot solely for windsurfers, I don't see how it would have been possible to swim at this location or snorkel without being run over by windsurfers. The reef was way to far from the shore.

We stopped by Lac Bay so my husband could windsurf. The first day it was not really windy enough so we just hung out and drank some mojitos. We returned the following day and were able to enjoy windsurfing. There are plenty of chairs, drinks and free wifi at this spot.
