Surfing
Surfing in Cabarete and on the North Coast of the Dominican Republic is perfect for beginners, intermediate and advanced surfers alike. While Cabarete is better known for it’s consistent wind, the wind mostly picks up in the afternoon, making the morning excellent for daily surf sessions. There are several breaks where you can find long, powerful ramp-like waves for long boarders or fast tubular waves for short boarders – all with warm water year round, so you’ll never have to step into a wetsuit while you’re on holiday with us.
