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.

We recently ran across this place the day before we left Bonaire. We really enjoyed having a beer on the patio and watching the wind surfers. Really cool place! Would love to go back and try the wind surfing!

Really the best place for windsurfing and learning. Nice wind, shallow warm water, no waves and the most spectacular emerald coloured water

This is a super chill spot where you can lounge in oversized comfy beach chairs and get some great food and drinks. The water is only about three feet deep throughout the bay so you can wade out and cool off in the... More
