    Cabarete is a great beach town with five different beaches, good eats, a lively bar scene, and tons of expats and vacationers who flock to the town year-round. There are lots of hotels to choose from, though if you're looking for an all-inclusive the pickings are slim.

    The main reason people to Cabarete are the windsports--this happens to be one of the best places in the world to kiteboard and windsurf. There are a bunch of kiteboarding/windsurf schools in town--they're impossible to miss--most charging $60-70 per hour for private instruction.

    Cabarete is located on the north side of the island, a short ride by gua gua or taxi from Sosua (strangely, there is no bus service directly to town).

    Cabarete is located about 15 minutes east of Sosua road, on the North Coast of the Dominican Republic. This beach town, located between a bay and a lagoon, is very popular among the youth and the young at heart. The atmosphere is a colorful and casual mix of national folklore, international tourism, the sport of windsurfing and adventure tourism.

    Its attractions include the scenery of its mountains, two lakes (Cabarete and Punta Goleta), its caves and its hamlet close descendants of freed slaves brought from the United States in the last century. From the geomorphological point of view is nestled on the coastal plain of Yásica.

    Cabarete is known internationally for his exceptional conditions for windsurfing. Its waters have been held several tournament championships World Cup Windsurfing Association and takes place every year the amateur World Cup, the Cabarete Race Week. There are several active windsurfing schools throughout the year.

    Besides windsurfing, Cabarete is known for its range of sports and adventure tourism. There are many organized tours to explore the inland fields, riding bikes Monteo, or bird-watching in the lagoon of Cabarete

    Cabarete is a great town for active people; worldclass kiteboarding, windsurfing and surfing all within a 5 miles radius. Beach party-ing and dining and a mellow Caribbean vibe

    Cabarete is the place to kite board in the Dominican Republic! The wind is awesome most of the year and the beach is the perfect venue for all levels of boarders. There are various teaching and rental outfits right on the beach.

    Took this picture of my son while he's sitting down on this tree trunk washed ashore on the beach at Cabarete, Dominican Republic.

    It is my favorite place in the Dominican Republic, its the ease to relax that makes this place perfect. To put it this way, I feel like I leave the country when I'm here. The place is surrounded by lovely people that drive positive vibrations all around the place, not just dominicans, but people from different corners of the world that have stayed in this little paradise. It's a great destination if don't dare to say the best for extreme sports enthusiasts. This is where Kiteboarding was born, so just hit the beach and you won't have to look far if you want to Kite surf. If you like skateboarding, try the Extreme hotel, you don't have to necessary be staying there, to use the skate amenities you can just go to the ramp (pool) skate and hang. If you're a long boarder, there are a couple of rural paths, actually very nice roads, where you can appreciate nature at a speed only you can attain by tapping into your inner-self, wind, and your longboard. The Night Life is @ the beach, just hit it, and you'll see the different ambiences and bars Cabarete has to offer!

    Unique seaside town in the North of Dominican Republic, basically a crescent shaped bay with good wind for kite surfing and other water sports. Cabarete is a lifestyle in its own, lots of restaurants, pubs and discos combined with a jaw dropping scenery that draws people from all over the world, from all ages between 18-65.

Description

Cabarete is a laid-back beach town in the Puerto Plata province of the Dominican Republic. It’s renowned for its beautiful golden beach and tranquil lagoon, and the combination of prevailing winds, the position of the reef, and the low hills behind the town create perfect conditions for windsurfing and kitesurfing. Cabarete has played host to international kitesurfing competitions in the past, and ... read more
the nearby Playa Encuentro is one of the top surfing spots in the whole of the Caribbean. Other adventure activities like mountain biking and scuba diving are also popular, and if that sounds like too much hard work, after a day’s lounging on the beach, the nightlife is lively and infectious.
