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

A gem of a site! We didn't go to windsurf but just to relax. You can walk hundreds of meters in half a meter of water, snorkel, swim, sun tan, paddle board, sky is the limit! Beautiful beach and pristine waters!

What a great location to come and sit and relax to watch the wind surfers do their stuff. There is also a beach right near by where you can walk and continue watching the wind surfers.

We were in on a cruise for the day and took a taxi out to the end of the island and found this super cool bar and shop where locals kite surf and you can take lessons. It was the highlight of our day! It is fun to sit and have drinks while watching everyone out on the water. It... More

If you are lucky enough to get to view the full moon while in Bonaire, go to Jibe City and have a seat on the rustic deck for a perfect night. There are relatively no outside lights, so when the moon rises it's like you have a bird's eye view and it's spectacular. It's a fun way to view the... More

Not really liking giving this review but also spoke to a few others and seem they are of the same opinion. I have no complaints with the food its normally good but getting it is another story so I...

Had a unique meal here...was very good. Watched several new comers learn to windsurf almost immediately. The beach and water was great. Was a bit to choppy for standing up paddling on the board....but was still fun.
