On Bonaire’s rugged east coast, you’ll find an idyllic lagoon as expansive and stunning as a Tahitian atoll. It’s called Lac Bay, and it is part of Bonaire National Park.
On the Sorobon side of Lac Bay lies one of the windsurfing meccas of the world – Jibe City. Windsurfers flock here for its consistent winds, warm waters and sandy bottom.
We recently enjoyed a leisurely lunch at Jibe City’s Hang Out Bar. The food was very good, the wine was very cold, and the view was simply stunning. And while I’m partial to the ultra relaxed beach bars in the British Virgin Islands, Jibe City’s beach hut is right up there in terms of the qualities I prefer in a beach bar – sandy floors and salty patrons are the norm here.
If windsurfing is not your sport, Jibe City has plenty of others activities from snorkeling to paddle boarding to kayaking to massage to simply lounging on the beach.
