Cabarete Town and Beach
Cabarete town and beach for the most part enjoy perfect year round conditions for both kite-surfing and windsurfing and is the water-sports capital of The Dominican Republic. Cabarete is an extremely laid-back place, both bohemian and cosmopolitan, it attracts water sports enthusiasts and travelers from around the world. Cabarete has a great selection of bars and restaurants most of which can be found along it’s expansive beach. During the evenings the beach transforms as the bars and restaurants spill outwards to create a unique dining experience beneath the stars.
Cabarete is well positioned for those wishing to explore the other coastal towns across the north coast of the Dominican Republic. Sosua and Puerto Plata lie to the west, and Las Terrenas and Samana can be found to the east.
The Dominican Republic has become a viable, full time living destination for several groups of people. Including retirees (who’s pensions go a lot further here than back home), young families (who are looking for a more healthy, outdoors based lifestyle) and entrepreneurs looking to take part in an up and coming, strong growing economy.
On the other hand, for those of you that quite simply want to relax and take it easy, Cabarete is quite simply the perfect place to chill, so much so that shoes are pretty much optional in this town.
Encuentro Surf Beach:
Encuentro beach which famous for its surf break, lies halfway between the towns of Sosua and Cabarete and is renowned for the Master of the Ocean event which takes place each February. The competition combines the disciplines of kitesurfing, windsurfing, paddle-boarding and surfing over three days in a quest to find the ultimate waterman and water woman. Incidentally those of you that might be interested in taking up any of the above mentioned water sport activities will find a good selection of schools and instructors readily available within the area.
