"ALWAYS WIND & WAVES!"
Bonaire is the 'place to be' for windsurfing enthusiasts. Lac Bay lagoon is highly regarded as a top location by windsurfers from all over the world.
The shallow clear-turquoise water and almost non-stop winds make the lagoon a windsurfing paradise. The available beach bars provide delicious lunch and ice-cold drinks in addition to lots of fun.
Bonaire's almost ever-present wind makes 'Atlantis' beach the ideal spot for kitesurfers. A beautiful white sand beach, kite buses and wind guarantee a lot of fun, fun, speed and high jumps.
Equipment can be rented at Lac Bay windsurfing sites and at the kit schools at Atlantis.
Want to learn to windsurf or kite? Both the windsurfing locations and the 3 different kite schools also provide courses.

RINCON AND GOTO LAKE
North of Kralendijk, the road winds towards Bonaire's oldest village, Rincon, with around 2,000 inhabitants.
With the Caribbean Sea on one side and characteristic cliffs on the other, you drive here via the "touring road". After the beautiful coastal road branches off, there you will find Lake Goto, a beautifully situated saltwater lake. The surroundings are beautifully green and along the irregular waterline groups of pink flamingos stand out colourfully against the blue of the lake in search of food.
A visit to Rincon is definitely worthwhile for its charming and authentic feel. Try a bite of 'local food' in one of the restaurants there.
Lac Cai is a lagoon partially enclosed by coral reefs on the east side of Bonaire. The bottom of this bay used to be littered with conch (karko) shells.
Its remains are still here in memory, big piles of white shells. Every Sunday afternoon, locals dance to the music of a local band and you can get some delicious fish from the BBQ.
Salt is Bonaire's main export product. Sea water is imported into the salt pans through connecting canals. The evaporation process slowly turns the water deep pink.
The complete evaporation of a salt lake sometimes takes up to a year. The raw salt is eventually scooped out of the pans, washed, filtered and laid out to dry. The resulting salt mountains can be seen from a long distance away.
Near the salt pans, you will find the monumental slave houses where in earlier times slaves who worked in salt extraction were housed. On weekends, the slaves walked back to their quarters in Rincon, a weekly 35-kilometre hike.
