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.

This is a nice area to chill, wind surf, bath in the water with a glass. Quit, warn and crystal clear water. A bit crowded. Few bars on the beach, some busier then others. Place for setting up your own picnic.

The fish nuggets were yummy. Very busy place with buses bringing in customers from the cruise ships. Beautiful setting. Dont count on being able to find vacant lounge chairs unless you go later in the afternoon.

Getting to all of the places you want to do will be difficult without a car. Brenda at H20 Bonaire does island tours as well as water tours so that may be your best bet. Bonaire is small so you could do quite a few of those... More

To just go to Lac Bay, there is no charge. You can just park and go in the water either swimming or snorkeling or windsurfing if you have your own equipment. If you want to rent a lounge chair, rent equipment or eat... More
