We enjoyed hanging out at Jibe City. The seats were comfortable and the view of Lac Bay was amazing. The wait staff was friendly. The food and specialty drinks were delicious and the beer was always ice cold. One of my favorite spots to rest and relax in Bonaire.

We only stopped for an hour while out on a bike ride, would have loved to have stayed longer but was on a trip from the cruise ship. Would love to go back and spend more time on the island. Facilities great, soft beds, food and a nice bar. Water so calm and lots of people wind surfing.

We are not windsurfers but this was our second trip to Bonaire and we would not dream of going there without visiting JIBE CITY. The water spectacle with all the windsurfers and the beach in general are special and almost mystical when you think how far into the ocean you can walk with the water waist high and crystal clear....

Spent a week in bonaire and kids windsurfed every day at Jibe City. Our boys enjoyed being able to try different boats. Lessons made huge skill improvement. Great place to relax and grab a bite to eat and a drink also. Friendly staff. We will be back.

Take a break from all that diving... when doing the southern dive sites, swing around past the lighthouse and and up to Lac Bai and check out Jibe City, a great bar with a fabulous feel and a LOT of windsurfing... I don't but it totally looks great and this is the real deal, lots of equipment should you wish.... More

There are little places here to eat while you kite surf. Water is crystal clear right by lac bay. A place you can visit not far from the airport. About 15 min if you take the short cut or 40 min. If you take the scenic route. You can also snorkel by lac bay which is right next door.

But it's the islands, so it's just a bar, not a dive bar. With pretty damn good crab sandwiches. And beach chairs, in the water, under the edge of the roof. Awesome.

This place is sooooo laid-back. You can take windsurf lessons here or just swim and relax. The bay is shallow and good for a swim because rocks on the horizon breaks the big waves from the open sea. Just keep in mind that it is always windy here since this is on the rough side of the island. Guys from... More
