Bozo Beach

Splitting a bay with Cabarete Beach in the town of Cabarete is Bozo Beach. A school that teaches visitors how to kite board is located just off the beach, and students spend their days practicing at Bozo Beach. In fact, Bozo Beach was named for the students who haven't quite mastered the craft and look particularly silly trying.

Set in Cabarete, Bozo Beach is on the North edge of the Dominican Republic. You might want even if you are not staying in the vicinity. You may notice that beaches throughout the Dominican Republic are usually somewhat secluded and quiet, but Bozo Beach is decidedly different.

How to Access The Beach
Bozo Beach can be reached via a short dirt road off Highway 3, right next to Big Air Kite School.

Amenities and Ambiance

Bozo Beach is comprised of soft, well packed sand, and backed with coconut palms. The waters are a deep aquamarine, and the waves are just strong enough to make kite surfing a challenge.

Please note that public restrooms are not available, which is something to consider if you plan to spend a full day in the sun.

Be mindful that the area right around Bozo Beach is rather congested, so make sure to get a spot!
