We went to Jibecity to windsurf, and ended up doing the whole two weeks just going there every day! We took windsurfing classes and then rented boards and practiced. The instructors were very nice to us and gave us such good advice that we improved quite quickly. They also helped us pick up the best material to practice every day... More

Don't miss out on Jibe's table bbq every Thursday! The spare ribs were the best I've ever had and the fresh tuna was out of this world! It's all a bit crowded at the small tables but it is a very nice experience for a good price. Staff is really friendly and funny as well!

I had an amazing day at Jibe City with my closest friends. We took windsurfing lessons for the first time which was a great experience. The instructors were kind and helpful and the price was worth it! The beach is white sand, and has many chairs to lay on and sunbathe and the Jibe City restaurant has plenty to choose... More

Great wind every day, with shallow water, which is great for those of us that don't yet know how to waterstart start. There is a nice selection of boards to choose from. The restaurant next door has great price, but the food is not very good. Find the meal you like and stick to it every day. The beer is... More

I don't boardsurf, but had so much fun watching all the people doing this. There were times there were so many people out at the same time I don't know how they didn't run into each other. Some were just learning while others were seasoned pro's which made it exciting to watch. Loved all the colors of the sails. There... More

My husband and I were visiting Bonaire as scuba divers, when we heard of Jibe City. This casual restaurant is located over the water and overlooking the windsurfers in the bay. We had fresh salads and sandwiches with the local beer. This was so good that we visited this place for lunch three times. Wonderful open air lunch.

I personally do not really like windsurfing that much. It really is a great beach for windsurfing though. You can easily stand up everytime you fall off the board and for experienced surfers there is a lot of room to surf.

It is always fun to visit Jibe City. The ambiance is mellow and relaxed. Find yourself a table and just grab a seat and enjoy the magnificent view. The staff is professional and fast and. Order a drink or something to eat. Mitch the guy who prepares our drink is enthusiastic and friendly. People like Mitch make your stay extra... More

We had visited Lac Bay & watched the windsurfing in the past, but this year we decided to try windsurfing out for ourselves. Getting a lesson scheduled might be difficult- I recommend calling directly as inquiries submitted on the website weren't answered in any timely fashion as to be remotely helpful (I suspect because of how busy they are all...

The water is wonderful, shallow. Wind was excellent through the whole week. The people at Jibe City are also nice and helpful. I will for sure come back here.
