This place was a picture perfect place. Had a great beach and a good place to learn to windsurf. The drinks were awesome at the bar as well. Would go back next time in Bonaire.

My wife and I went here twice to watch the windsurfers and just relax. This is a very casual place that pretty just caters to windsurfers. But it was fun to sit at the beach front bar and have lunch and drinks. Great funky place...More
