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.

  • Located in Lac Bay, across the sorobon beach. Do you have any infrastructure, little marine life, but it's usually possible to see some turtles. Worth knowing.

  • Lac Cai is a nice, quiet place for snorkeling and to lookup to go to beautiful turtles. We have been there twice and both times spotted turtles. To get there you need to follow a long bumpy dirt road, but once there you come in a haven of peace. There is little shelter, so choose a somewhat overcast day. Outdoor snorkeling and search for turtles there is little fish watching. Fun to do with kids, wonderful experience..

  • 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.

  • The magnificent LAC BAY touches in their naturalness and by ordinary people, who live in this environment. Mounting the shell mountains has its special "collector".
