Jibe City is on the wild side of the island and is therefore in the perfect location for wind sports. It's a laid back place. check it out.

We stopped by for a drink while on the golf cart tour. Action packed place with all the wind surfers. Very nice small beach. The restaurant served good food.

Bonaire is a beautiful place. This was my first time visiting and I went to Jibe City to learn how to windsurf. My boyfriend had used Jibe City in the past. My instructor, David was disinterested - when I signed up for the lesson, I was not told it would be in a group. David taught me a jibe and... More

Spent a week windsurfing in Lac Bay, one of the best flat water windsurfing places in the world. Every day the wind averaged 15-21 knots, water is only knee to waist deep in most of the bay, perfect to learn jibes. Jibe's city has the best selection of boards and sails, including current year models from RRD,what else can you... More

This place was quite a sight! Clear, turquoise water as far as the eye could see. An abundance of windsurfers which were fun to watch! My husband and I shared the plain cheese nachos because they were completely out of chicken and didn't have burgers in stock either. A little plain for our liking but good enough for a beach...

We loved our time here! Our family took a windsurfing lesson and all of us picked it up fairly quickly thanks to our friendly and patient instructor Mikkel (sp?). It's a great place for beginners. Lac Bay itself is amazing, with blue waters that feel like you've stepped into the pages of a travel magazine. We had great snorkeling here... More

This place was a picture perfect place. Had a great beach and a good place to learn to windsurf. The drinks were awesome at the bar as well. Would go back next time in Bonaire.
