Only really nice beach on island with restaurant right in beach to get bar type food and drinks. But very family friendly. Avoid days cruise ship in town because it is packed at lac bay.

Beautiful part of the island on the east coast. The Bay is the nursery for pretty much the entire Island and is the hot spot for windsurfing. We caught up with East Coast Divers which operates out of Lac Bay for a 2 tank drift...More

We spent our last day at Lac Bay. If you are an expert windsurfer, plenty of room, if you are just a beginner it's easy. The bay is super shallow, so it makes it easy to fall off and climb back on and try again....More

Planned to spend a beach day here, but upon arrival it was not what I expected at all. This is a spot solely for windsurfers, I don't see how it would have been possible to swim at this location or snorkel without being run over...More

As stated by the previous responses it is a 10-12 min cab ride from the cruise ship terminal. There are cabs waiting as you disembark with drivers who are most helpful and you can either make arrangements for the same cab... More
I am wondering if this place is far from where the cruise ships dock and if we can just cab it there instead of booking a tour through the cruise line?

Contemplating visiting Lac Bay and snorkeling at the reef, but am worried about the annoyance of windsurfers. Am I constantly going to have to fight against windsurfers or worry about being run over by them when snorkeling at the reef?
