Great little place that rents windsurfing equip and kayaks.they sell flip flops, beach clothes, rash guards, sun screen (necessary) and sunglasses. I rented windsurfing gear for beginners for 1 hour and it cost approx $30. Since I paddle board, surf, wakeboard and snowboard I felt I could figure it out without a lesson. This cove is the perfect place for... More

Checked out the scene at Jibe city on vacation a few weeks ago. The kids enjoyed a class then an hour of wind surfing while the parents relaxed on the beach. The bar could not have been closer to all the activity and food was good. Had a blast wading in the water to watch the kids wind surfing. The... More

What an amazing place to windsurf. The staff for the most part is very helpful in getting the right gear. I had taken some lessons prior to going and practiced every day while there. Andy was a great teacher - he does windsurf clinic every year in March. Bert was also a great year-round instructor that works on the island.... More

good selection of boards and sails. you pick your board and bring it to the water. they have attendants to bring you your sail. they can advise you regarding size. sometimes if it is a busy week, you may not get the exact sail you want but most times it works out. biggest issue is on days when wind is...

Great comfortable FREE beach chairs. Excellent salads (for me a non salad person), sandwiches, and drinks. Light music. Watch people windsurf or go for a shallow dip. All around a very relaxing afternoon after diving or on your pre flight day. You may even try to learn how to windsurf on your own like I did and fall every time... More

Visited this beach and the Hangout Bar, Jibe City whilst in Bonaire for the day. The scenery and views are fantastic, set within a lightly shelving bay. Lots of marine life (snorkeling) as well as all the wind sports you would expect. Tip - when we got to the beach, everyone seems to turn left onto the beach, and therefore... More

Colorful beach club on white sandy beach overlooking the superb Lac Bay. Beautiful clear blue, warm shallow waters. Very nice and relaxed atmosphere. A very good place to take it easy, have a cold drink and watch the windsurfers ... or join 'm. All windsurfing equipment is available for rent. Food is simple but good and affordable.

Stopped for lunch today. Had the Jibe Pita and my husband had the chicken wings. Both excellent and hit the spot. The beer is cold and the atmosphere relaxing. The bartenders were friendly as usual. Love hanging out and watching the wind surfers. Just stay away when the cruise ships are in town- it gets way too busy.

Great staff, decent equipment and reasonable rental prices. Not as enamored with the beach bar...beers are priced the same as all over the island but food is overpriced and pretty boring. There's not a lot of space here, so we just got our gear and headed out to the water (which was also fairly crowded). I'd say this is an... More
