So it is acutally a huge cove that is excellent for wind surfing, that has restaurant and a beach bar, and a place where you can rent equipment out. The food is good, the view is spectacular, and the wind makes it plesant. You do have to drive to it, but it's well worth wile.

We were told to definitely stop by here, before heading on our mangrove tour. Sandy floor bar, lounge chairs over looking beautiful looking water and laid back atmosphere. We had such a great time, that we came back the following day to relax. Watching the newbies and experience windsurfers made me wish that I was coordinated enough to try. They... More

The food is nothing to write home about but the view and impression of watching the wind surfers speed through the crystal blue water is amazing. It is a definite must if you're on Bonaire. You can even learn to wind surf there, bring your bathing suit.

We just loved this place; Very nice restaurant/bar serving lunch, sunbath, swim in the most blue-turkis water; walking far out, looking at the windsurfers and just enjoy beeing there :-)

We first stopped by for coffee after diving..It is a sandy floor restaurant overlooking a calm crystal clear bay with windsurf operators teaching you how to sail. The prices are not bad, it was not crowded, and you could literally sit here all day...this place is amazing....go see it for a cup of coffee just to test it out...you will... More

It's a few miles outside of Kralendijk. Easily accessible by car. We were early so we could choose a spot in the shade. All lounge beds are free. If you want shade be in time! The beach is great. Food and drinks are served on the beach or you can go to the restaurant. Do not go here if you... More

I visit this wonderful laid back place at the beach with my grandson. While he plays in the water, I enjoy a morning coffee while listening to chill music and watching the wind surfers sail by. Or I go there for lunch with friends and sometimes to listen to live music. Food is good, scenery just beautiful! Need to visit... More

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
