Cabarete Beach shares a bay with Bozo Beach, which is where the local Kiteboarding school is located. While Bozo Beach is where the novices go to learn, Cabarete Beach is for the more experienced athletes. While this beach is not one of the best for swimming and sun bathing, watersports, dining, and drinking are what draws crowds.

Set in Cabarete, Cabarete Beach is on the North coast of the Dominican Republic. You should consider dropping by even if you aren't staying particularly close by. Active travelers who enjoy attractions that are right in the middle of it all will probably have a good time at Cabarete Beach.

Amenities and Ambiance

Cabarete Beach scoops into the coast with its golden sands and aqua colored waters. The surf can be rough here, but the onshore atmosphere is thick with excitement and adventure as kite surfers head out to catch some waves.
