Windsurfers could not ask for a better spot than Lac Bay on the east coast of Bonaire. What has made the area so popular is the 90% chance of favorable winds and the 100% assurance of a sheltered, shallow bay to challenge the experts to sail and entice the novice into learning this fast-paced sport. While not all windsurfing activity takes place at Lac, that is where the surf shops are located and is where most people tend to congregate.
Lac bay, protected by the Bonaire Marine Park rules and regulations, has the most beautiful turquoise water and balmy breezes. It is approximately 8 square kilometers and free from boat traffic. There is plenty of room to let loose and enjoy the feel of the board slicing through the calm waters at Lac.
Beginners can start to learn the sport in knee deep water allowing for easy recovery from falls while the bay's protective barrier reef lets them gain confidence on the calmest of waters. More experienced sailors can venture out into the more challenging blue-green swells where there is still some protection from large waves. It is here that the wind kicks up a few clicks and the thrills of the sport are realized. The even more experienced and adventurous can sail Lac Bay's outer edges where the mast high swells and strong winds guarantee sailing conditions that are world class.
