A haven for kite boarders and wind surfers as well as stand up paddle boards as the entire bay is barely waist deep. Wide open so always a good breeze/wind. Couple of 'board' rental places on property as well as a fun little beach bar.

Just a really beautiful place to wile away the day. Be as active or as lazy as you want to be. Windsurfing, sunning and beach chair loafing. They have it all, plus a bar.

Been a lot of places and this rivals even flamingo beach in Culebra as turquoise blue waters with forever sand. Here you can walk 20 min out to an amazing snorkeling reef... CRAZY! Mellow, relaxing vibe. The windsurfing entertainment with shade, food/drinks at either beach...More

Lac Bay is a real gem. Usually you can find flamingo’s in this shallow mangrove lake with direct open access to the East coast sea. It is a great lake for windsurfing and a nice spot for learning kite surfing. Do not expect to find...More
