We have no prior experience windsufring and learned how to do it with some success after the one hour beginning lesson! We had such a fun time practicing after the lesson, which is included. The water was really nice and shallow, making it easier to get on the board to start over. The nearby bar/restaurant had an incredible burger, and... More

The view from Jibe is spectacular and it is a really cool place to chill out. The food is basic but really good and the Sangria (extra spicy) is good by the glass and GREAT by the pitcher. The staff is very attentive and friendly as well.

This place during the day is the place to hang out and relax, rest and watch the action of windsurfers, or just join in ! But whatever you do witha well experienced bar staff and a great chef preparing tasty treats you will never go hungry. Thursday evening is the experience you have to try, a table top BBQ where...

Though I do not windsurf, I thoroughly enjoy sitting and watching all the people who do while I gaze out the most beautiful aqua blue bay I have ever seen..and let me tell you,if you don't windsurf, GO FOR THE FOOD!! 😎 I have not been disappointed a single...

Excellent location for windsurf, but also nice beach and beach restaurant. The swallow waters are warm and it is an excellent spot to learn windsurfing because you can simply step on and off the board.

Windsurfing paradise, hanging out on the beach, surfshop, eat & drinks (try the Jibe burger and the nojito (yes, a non-alcoholic mojito :)). Combine windsurfing with relaxing, you can stay here all day.

This is in Lac Bay and where the Hang Out beach bar is located. See my reviews on those two sites. Jibe city will rent out the wind surfing equipment and they also offer lessons.
