Sorobon Beach, Jibe City (1 day)
The best place to spend your day at Sorobon is Beach Club Jibe City, where you can rent windsurf equipment, stand-up-paddle boards, take lessons or just chill and enjoy the view and the windsurf-action.
The Hang-Out Bar is a great place to enjoy the beach life on Bonaire offering a tasty and varied menu and a well-stocked bar. There are plenty of tables, sofas, sun loungers, which you can use for free. They serve great lunch dishes as well and the crab sandwich is absolutely favorite.
Jibe City is open every day from 9 am to 6 pm. But if the vibe is good, they stay open longer. Just rent a car, scooter or bicycle and drive to Sorobon Beach. You will find Jibe City very easily. From Kralendijk take the blue roundabout near the Van den Tweel supermarket towards the east. At the end of the winding nature road, go left and you'll see the sign on the street.
For more information about the exact location and the rates for windsurfing lessons check their website.
Karel's Beach Bar (1 eve)
Karel's Beach Bar is without doubt the place to be on Bonaire when you feel like going out. Drop by for a nice cold drink or delicious snacks. Enjoy the view and the ocean breeze.
They call it Karel’s Beach Bar, and even though it is located at the seaside, we don’t know where the beach is. But a nice bar it is. There's a Karaoke Night Party every Wednesday, Student Night on Thursday's and of course a great party on Friday's and Saturday’s.
It is located in downtown Kralendijk at Kaya J.N.E. Craane #12. The opening hours are from 5 pm to 3 am.
