I'm looking to buy same type of beach chairs like they have at Jibe City. Does anybody know if those are for sale or produced on the island?

The Teak Outlet and Plantation have proper teak loungers (and maybe chairs) but they are not cheap....

Hello Michael..I really had to laugh when I read this and will DEFINITELY echo Pat's comments above.

I'm wondering whether I can find canvas sling folding chairs on BON. The ones that fold right up and go into their own little sack.

josie, we've never seen them there. i know exactly what you mean. i wish they would carry them somewhere on bonaire. i'd check the chinese store and see what they have.

They are available from time to time at the Tung Fung store and sometimes other places. It is the luck of the draw when and where to find them. Some camping supply stores do also carry the canvas ones.

i happened to be in bonaire super store this morning and they have LOTS of beach chairs in stock in many different styles and in canvas...

Pietri, did you see the ones that collapse up and slide into their own little canvas bag? The seat is like a sling, and it has a reasonably high back and arms...

i really didn't check that closely but there are many many different styles .. i would think you should send benny over .. this will probably not happen again on bonaire .. there is a big sale going on at the store so i would encourage benny to get there sooner than later .. once sold out .. often never seen again .. good luck .. i did see the ones that fold into a bag a while ago at bonaire gift shop .. also a branch of this store .. bonaire mart might have them ...

I went to the Super Store today, ISO new beach chairs. They're very nice full-body lounge chairs-more like deck chairs with neck pillows and canopies (brown and taupe colors). They do fold for carrying, but IMO, are a bit heavy/fancy for taking to a "beach," but of course it's possible. I think it's a nylon weave fabric for outdoor use, not canvas, with an aluminum frame and plastic arm-rests (AND a cup holder!). They're fls 210,00 (or 195 for the yellow one w/o the canopy/cup holder), less the 20% sale discount (+ 5% tax). There's also a more simple nylon weave aluminum-frame folding chair (sky-blue) that comes with what looks like a removable/washable seat pad (no leg or arm supports, or canopy). That one's fls 125,00 (less 20% sale).

Holy cow. In us funds over $100 bucks. Don't they have any of the low just above the sand ones for like $25 bucks. I'd like to get a couple of those and then I'd gift them to the person who bought them for me (Of course I'd pay for them) after we use them for 2 weeks.

Marge..Welcome to Bonaire!! Our folding beach chairs cost us over $200 each to get them down there. $100 for decent stuff is a bargain.
