Had a great time spending a few hours learning the art of windsurfing. The employees here are top notch and we had a great experience. Was definitely a memory we will keep with us. Small complaint is the number of swimmers in the windsurf area. For us 'less experienced people', the swimmers caused us to jump off the boards often... More

It is very easy to hop on a board and sail. My husband was a beginner, but within a week, he was sailing with a harness and beach starting- thanks to the lessons from Kenneth and Ro. Elvis and Putun were fair and professional with the logistics/business side, and Kenneth, Ro, Flo, Mark, and Danielo made sure we always had... More

I'll admit, we didn't get to stay long. We were the second cruise ship in port (and the only one scheduled) but at 10 am, there was no beach chairs or umbrellas left. The beach looked beautiful and the bar looked like fun but we simply could not sit down. Most the area with chairs was uncovered (which is fine... More

A great place to learn. Nice wind and lovely sheltered bay for hours of windsurfing. The waters were not completely flat as expected, but was slightly wavy which locals attributed to El Nino. While it's mostly sandy at the bottom, there are the occasional rocks and I was glad that I brought my booties. Phenomenal staff - they are friendly... More

The bay was nominated one of the most beautiful places of the island, and it really is so . Windsurfers speeding through the bay add to the picture. There is a windsurf equipment rental shop and store with knowledgeable instructors available for group and private lessons. The staff is very friendly and helpful, so one feels very comfortable right away.... More

I had the opportunity to make windsurf in Bonaire and it was a great experience thanks to the professional staff of Windsurf Place. Roger, Elvis and all the team are very gentle and professional, the boards and sails are brand new giving me the opportunity to try some new boards just launched in the market. Highly reccommended!

Had a great time talking to Elvis Martinus (one of the founders) about the early history of windsurfing in Bonaire, and his integral role in helping get the wind surfing program going for young Bonairians. If you're there, I would not only recommend the wind surf lessons (and a coffee next door), but also try to catch Elvis and learn... More
