Hang Out Beachbar 25 jaar

The Hang Out Beachbar celebrates its 25th anniversary!

(January 2015) - Founder Ernst van Vliet once said in an interview: "At first I just wanted to set up short-term rental of boards and sails and thereby serve the best surfing spots from my Rambler Rebel station wagon. But I soon realized that the bay is the best place on Bonaire for windsurfing and I decided to build a simple hut for my boards and sails. First, this hut was simply called "windsurfing Bonaire", but because circumstances are so perfect for gibing, I renamed it 'Jibe City'.

The hut has been transformed over the past two decades into what it is today: a thriving surf center with an atmospheric 'hang out', the Hang Out Beachbar, with a nice menu, tasty cocktails and great people behind the bar, in the kitchen and on the beach.
