Playa Cabarete

Day or Night, Cabarete Beach is the hot spot of the North Coast on the Dominican Republic. People watching, kiteboarding, windsurfing, shopping, live music, restaurants with cuisine from around the world, and dancing are all in the center of the bay.

Walking the beach takes you past beach cabanas, lounge chairs, tables and umbrellas. The ocean waves are mild with little ankle slappers perfect for wading and kids or stand up paddle boarding and learning windsurfing.

Night brings the wild side of Cabarete to life. With visitors from around the world Spanish and English are the two most common languages on the beach.

Bozo Beach

West of Playa Cabarete Bozo Beach hosts kiteboarding schools and hotels. It is not overly developed with trees and grass lining the beach. Crowds are not a problem on in this area making it great for walking the dogs, relaxing, or exercising. The beach break is much rougher here so beginner kiters will typically walk downwind to smoother beach break.

 

Kite Beach

Easily recognize by the massive amount of kites floating across the sky. Kite Beach is the hub of Cabarete kiteboarding, accommodations, restaurants, cafes, trapeze, circus school, SUP and kayak rentals. This area is filled with activities for all occasions.

 

Baby Beach

On the eastside of Cabarete, east of Janet’s Supermarket there is a lines of reef/rock that hold pools of water that warm in the sun. The beach is protected from breaking waves (most days). The pools are around 2 to 3 feet deep.
