Bonaire's mangrove forests are an important food source for life in the Caribbean Sea. A huge variety of animals make their home among the long roots of these trees. The mangroves are located in Lac Bay which is in the southeast corner of the island. Enjoy an athletic adventure and explore this protected nature reserve by kayak.
The mangroves in Lac Bay are over 850 years old and are unique within the Caribbean region. Lac Bay is home to 4 different species of mangroves. These trees are specially adapted to filter the salt from seawater and thus consume fresh water. This is one of the few species of trees to thrive in coastal regions.
