We are staying at Ultraviolette Boitique Residence. Lovely beach, with easy access. A lot of kite surfers come around after 2pm, and makes for a dose of live entertainment.

Cabarete is like a second home. Colorful kites, sunny blue sky, super awesome locals and tons of positive energy. Restaurants, walks, yoga, horseback riding, you name it!

I love the North Shore. Gentle waves and steady breeze makes the the perfect kite surfing beach. The water is warm enough for swimming throughout the winter as well. Plenty of places to eat and drink too!

This beach is good for kite surfing. It is not suitable for beach holiday or for families. In the two weeks I spent there, I was able to swim 4 times. The waves are rough and dangerous. The restaurants on the beach are for tourists and not exiting.

This beach is known for windsurfing and kiting. We came here for the windsurfing. Lots of restaurants and people during the day. Very easy to access and great for strolls. Plenty of places to stop for a quick meal or drinks.

Located near Sosua on the north shore of the Dominican Republic, Cabarete Beach is a pretty long sandy beach. While OK for sun bathing and walking the beach it is a poor beach for swimming as the waves are high and there can be an undertow. It would be good for surfing and wind sports. Go to the beach in...
