Lac Bay is usually peaceful, with occasional swimmers and not many divers when we have been there. It's quite a trek from the sandy area where you can park, then walk through ankle-to-midcalf-deep water with your gear on - we found water too shallow to...More

I'd recommend Lac Bay for families with small children due to the shallow waters and beach availability. There really isn't much in terms of beaches in Bonaire, and definitely not a destination I'd go for anything other than diving, but if you are the unfortunate...More

It was amazing to see all those Conch Shells at Lac Bay. It was very peaceful at this beach and there was actually a very long sandy beach (a rarity in Bonaire) since most beaches are very rocky in Bonaire. It is a beautiful day...More

The beach by the airport has really good snorkelling. It is easy to enter the water because it is a sand beach. There is also a food truck right there in the car park where they have great food.
