Welcome to Sorobon Beach & Wellness Resort, a laid back,  ocean front property situated on pristine Lac Bai. The bay is famous as it’s a Mecca for windsurfing. Outside the reef, find the Blue Lagoon which is inhabited by more than 1500 turtles, rays, lobsters, tarpons and other spectacular marine life. The property features rustic bungalows complete with wooden decks and hammocks. Get back to nature. There are no TV or phones but there is WIFI if you need to stay connected to the world.  

This serene spot is perfect for healing. There is full array of restorative services to heal your mind and body. Experience a healing massage or salt scrub. Take a yoga class as the sunsets. Enjoy a rigorous TRX workout. Savor a healthy smoothie after your spa treatment. Dine on vegan or vegetarian cuisines. The options are endless.

Why choose Bonaire? Bonaire continues to be recognized as one of the top destinations worldwide for its pristine marine park. Bonaire has a long history of nature preservation, and always seeks to find the delicate balance between environmental protection and growth, while maintaining nature and culture. Bonaire was one of the first Caribbean islands to collaborate with the Coral Restoration Foundation (CRF) to conserve our reefs. By launching a program to cultivate new corals, specifically the Staghorn and Elkhorn corals, Bonaire will be able to preserve the reef’s genetic diversity.

Wicked Wind

The trades continue to howl here in Bonaire. It’s truly, windsurf paradise. We’ve had little rain so the Sahara dust is fierce thus making sunsets spectacular. Come on down. Ask me for my many spring specials including 5-10% off select properties for last minute May bookings. I have space available for Andy Brandt’s ABK Spring Bonaire Camp May 26 week.

Windsurf Bliss

The Christmas trade winds arrived in time for the holidays. Marguerite and I have been camped out at Jibe City for the holidays. We have been watching the windsurf scene from our lounge chairs, enjoying the lovely cuisine at Hang out Bar and I have been catching a few solid windsurf sessions. My absolute favorite sail is the 4.7 meter Neil Pryde Wizard. Jibe City has a slew of newly rigged sails and brand new lovely JP boards. They also just received a shipment of Fanatic boards with more volume for the beginner or heavier sailor.

The bay has been rocking with some nice chop in the mornings. By afternoon, things flatten out a bit. Out on the highway, the British Invasion domininates. Leader of the pack, Trevor, clocked up a holiday record of 53.6 km/hr (28.9 knots) recently. The family sails from early in the morning until late in the day. I will upload some photos later once I figure out a snafu with my upload system. Trust me, it’s nuking here. To book your windsurf holiday contact ann@bonairewindsurfing.com

Jibe City Windsurf Center

For 11 years I have had the privilege of booking windsurf vacations for my discerning windsurf clients. Bonaire, best known as an amazing dive destination is also a windsurf Mecca due to shallow gin clear water, on shore steady trades and of course the famous Bonaire windsurf team. Jibe City is located on windy Lac Bay. New management has brought in high end gear and a reliable team of windsurf professionals to offer a high performance windsurf experience. Andy Brandt’s ABK Boardsports Camps are held throughout the year with a cluster during the winter windy season. Beginners can learn the sport while intermediates can hone their skills. Advanced sailors and pros come to train to refine their freestyle repertoire or to train in the deep blue in slalom conditions. To learn more about Bonaire’s windsurf scene, contact ann@bonairewindsurfing.com today. Caribbean Wind & Sun Vacation specializes in windsurf vacation packages and is a proud sponsor of the 2013 ABK Boardsports Camps.
