A few good eats ring this inlet. Good for wind surfing, kayaking, and hanging in the water. Easy entry at many areas and plenty of room to move around. Nice sand and plenty of amenities for any suit. Fun spot for the day.

Lac Bay has free parking and acres of shallow water with mainly sandy bottom for swimming, wading, and wind surfing. The beach is also very sandy, so you can do lots of sunbathing and people watching. We enjoyed three afternoons here - even waded as...More

Our children began to learn how to windsurf here in this lovely, warm and most importantly, shallow, bay. It is a safe and easy place to learn a sometimes difficult sport. I love it for its flat water sailing where you can work on jibing...More

A place to be on Bonaire. Beatiful bay, flat blue water, white beach and a great bar. Perfect relaxation spot.

Stunning Bay... the water is so blue it looks unreal. One of our favorite spots on Bonaire! Bring a cooler and a beach towel.

Windsurfing, paddling, kayaking, snorkeling, bird watching, all these and more to be done in Lac Bay. If you like sea water and sun you don't need to go any further.
