We snorkeled here on vacation and found it to be very nice. The catch is that you have to walk or swim about 20 minutes out from shore (the water is only 2-3 feet deep for this part) to get to the snorkeling area. It's just past the swim platform, on the near side of the barrier reef. There is... More

Jive City is a really neat bar/restaurant on Lac Bay which is famous for wind-surfing. Note the water is very, very shallow here so you can't really snorkel - but if you have rented a car or scooter for the day or afternoon - this is a cool place to visit and it has expanded to include another nice bar/restaurant...

One of a kind experience. A must see for all. The water is light blue, beautiful, nice white Sandy beach, and extremely shallow waters. You can walk up to a mile on knee high waters. It made me fall in love with bonaire. Nature at its best!

Great wind there for the windsurfers and for those trying to stay cool under the hot Bonaire sun. The water is very shallow and great for just cooling off. Nice bar beach side with great drinks. Great place to just relax and spectate the action.

Lac Bay is an exciting place to visit on the island. The food, beach, snorkling and kite surfing was fantastic.

This is the best place to go to the beach. The water is warm and quite shallow and has the most beautiful colour. You can walk out a long way on a soft sandy bottom.

The last day of our visit, since we couldn't dive, we decided to tour a bit of the island. Our first stop was Lac Bay, and we spent the better part of the day there. There are few places in the world as beautiful and relaxing as this bay, whether you windsurf or not. You can literally walk across the... More

Stayed half the day from the cruise ship, on recommendation from the information desk at the pier. They called it Sorobon beach on the map. If you take the group taxi van it is $5 each one way. The beach is beautiful, but there are some small rocks/coral when you pass between the roped off areas. The beach is very... More
