Lac Cai, Bonaire

4.5
#2 of 7 in Beaches in Bonaire
Enjoy a slice of paradise as you snorkel and swim, enter the water on horseback, or simply laze around at Lac Cai. Nestled between mangroves and the open sea, the lake features turquoise water and clean white sand. Stroll along the shore and find a mountain of shells sitting just by the water. If you're feeling peckish, head to a nearby restaurant, which occasionally hosts live performances. Bring plenty of sunscreen or even a beach tent, as there is minimal shade around the lake. Before you head to Bonaire, plan trip itinerary details with our user-friendly Bonaire sightseeing planning tool , to make sure you see all that Bonaire has to offer, including Lac Cai.

  • Beautiful pristine beach right next to the mangrove. Sea eagles and pelicans take care of the entertainment, you can enjoy snorkeling and is also doing well with children because you don't have to, but the first on Coral Sea slowly. There are no sun beds, but the two of us on a pallet on an otherwise deserted beach is also very nice! There is 1 stall where you freshly baked fish and what drink can come, nothing else, but that you have here also not necessary!

  • We went here to snorkel and hopefully to see turtles. However, the water was extremely murky and you couldn't see more than about 4 feet! Perhaps the weather conditions caused the clarity issues, but ...  more »
  • Beautiful secluded spot, well worth a visit. And if you're there, the local fish is a must!

  • Nice beach, great snorkeling and you can see turtles if you're lucky.
  • Excellent area Nice beach and sport posibilities like surf, kite, snorkel
  • Very nice and flat beach. Lovely for swimming.
  • Very sandy beach
  • An absolutely great place on Bonaire. Lac Cai is a protected area where you can kayak and among guidance where you can snorkel (from two beaches). In Lac Cai life over 1,200 green turtles and it is one of the few locations with seagrass. The water in Lac Cai is such a 3 times saltier than in the sea. There are also beautiful mangroves (to visit through the kayak only) and you can see flamingos. Unfortunately we had while snorkeling no turtles seen. Though many fish, oysters, various sponges, anemones and sea urchins.
