Known as the Mecca for Kitesurfing, Cabarete offers great opportunities for water sports. Year by year many enthusiastic kiters and surfers from all over the world, or those who want to become one, choose Cabarete as their favorite destination for a holiday. Perfect wind and wave conditions, crystal clear warm water, lots of sunshine and the beautiful Caribbean surroundings with its white beaches and thousands of palm trees are the best reasons to come. And besides surfing and kitesurfing, lots of other things to do and see.
Surfing. What many people don’t know is that Cabarete also offers great waves for surfing. The main Surf spot Playa Encuentro has waves all year around with the so called “winter season” from November until April as its best. Within that time ground swells from Canada reach the Dominican north shore and create amazing waves. The reef break Encuentro is the most consistent spot with a couple of left and right breaks. Surf schools are open all year round as even the “summer season” and also the rest of the year brings nice waves nearly every day. In summer a bit smaller, but perfect for beginners and still very good for intermediate and advanced surfers.
