This is the place to learn how to windsurf -- windsurf Bonaire on Lac Bay north of Jive City. Incredibly nice people and skilled coaches. Go for them and the shallow, sandy, warm waters!

Do yourself a favor and go to Lac Bay for an amazing sunset. A quick 15 minute drive from downtown that will leave you in awe.

You will be stunned how far you can walk out into the water and it never gets more than waist deep and is clear. There is a reef that keeps waves from coming in. It is really a 20 minute walk from the beach to...More

There was a "dispatcher" at the cruise terminal who gave us good information about going to Lac Bay - he correctly told us that we need to go to Sorobon Beach to access the protected and shallow part of Lac Bay. We took a cab...More
