Windsurfers find a true paradise on Bonaire. The steady trade winds and pleasant water temperatures are the ideal combination for windsurfing. The months February to August (high-wind season) are most suitable. In these months an average wind speed of 15 knots is measured with a maximum of 30 knots.
Sorobon Beach/Jibe city
Sorobon Beach is one of the most beautiful beaches on Bonaire. Most of Bonaire's beaches are dotted with beautifully shaped dead coral. Visually, that looks great, of course, but it does not invite you to lie down and enjoy the Caribbean sun.
In that aspect, the beach at Sorobon Beach is atypical for Bonairian beaches. Here you will not find any dead coral or pebbles but fine white powder sand. The beautiful beach merges into the azure-blue shallow waters of Lac Bay. All this together gives a heavenly picture.
Windsurfers from all over the world are extremely attracted to this unique location. The constant onshore wind ensures that the windsurfers are not sucked into the ocean, the lagoon is shallow and the seawater is of a wonderful temperature. All this together ensures that Lac Bay always ends at the top of the lists of the best global windsurf spots.
Jibe City is a relaxed and laid back windsurf centre situated at the Sorobon Beach where you can rent windsurfing equipment, stand-up-paddle boards, take lessons or just chill and enjoy the view and the windsurf action.
Besides the perfect place for windsurfing, Sorobon Beach also offers great food and chill spots. Because of the steady winds, it's one of the coolest places on Bonaire.
