Yes, it's busier than it used to be with all the wind surfers and cruise ship passengers. However, it's still a beautiful bay, and we love sitting on the beach and looking out over the amazingly blue water.

Fantastic location with a knowledgable friendly tour guide. We seen turtles, barracuda and numerous other fish and birds while on the Eco friendly boat. Also saw flamingos on the journey to Lac Bay as part of the safari trip.

Nice beach for Bonaire - perhaps one of the bigger ones on the island. Easy to reach with a restaurant near by - be warned however that on cruise ship days this place can be a bit crowded with cruise ship crowd of people, which...More

An amazing place to visit for the day or week! Water sorts and great beaches galore. The sea water is shallow for a long way out so it is great for young families.

Although theres not too much to do in bonaire went to Lac bay for lunch at Jibcity. Water was nice but too crowded and no real places to sit on the beach and enjoy the water. More for windsurfers.

Ok so we only spent 30 mins there as it was mega busy ... mostly locals and a lot of South Americans which was lovely but maybe because it was Sunday ( a family day ) in UK... I don't know but the skinny beach...More

I had windsurfed before but this was my husband’s second time and the first time was several years ago so this bay was the perfect place. It is a large shallow area protected by a reef. The bottom is just sand and some sea grass....More

Lac bay is a beautiful beach. Clean and safe even for families with small children. The water is very shallow.

I also was not on a tour. If you really want to do your own thing I would rec renting a car or taking a taxi. If you want windsurfing Jibe City has all you need.

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
