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.

I like to snorkel, so this was just a side trip to see what this part of the island is all about. The water is very shallow for a long way out, so that is why it is so popular with the wind surfers. (Besides the wind). They are on the Sorobon side of Lac Bay. It seemed there was... More

Came here in August 2016 for a two week scuba diving and windsurfing holiday with my family. I instantly found that the staff at jibe city were extremely friendly and helpful. As a upcoming freestyle windsurfer, I came to hopefully have a lesson with Caesar Finies. I was easily and instantly booked a lesson with him at a time convienient... More

We had taken a taxi van from the cruise ship port to this area. We had brought beach towels to sit on, and we sat (on the small beach area), or puttered in the water, at the eastern, northern part of the peninsula. It was a quiet beach area; hardly saw anybody else, in that spot. My husband kept going... More

My wife and I went here twice to watch the windsurfers and just relax. This is a very casual place that pretty just caters to windsurfers. But it was fun to sit at the beach front bar and have lunch and drinks. Great funky place and place to hang out for a couple of hours.

Loved this place! I had no desire to try kite surfing/ sailing but still loved it. The vibe is super cool, food is really good, staff is super and a great place to hang out. Spent a day here just hanging out and had a really fun time.

Jibe City was on my wish list for over 20 years and my experience met all expectations. I am an intermediate windsurfer and found the range of equipment to rent ideal. If you have just one day ashore from a cruise then I suggest you go to Jibe City or its neighbour Windsurfing Bonnaire and take a lesson. You will... More
