Kite Spots in Cabarete

Here’s a summary of the kitesurfing spots in Cabarete:

Kitebeach, Cabarete

This is the place where is all began. And it’s right at eXtreme Hotels doorstep!  Typically the beginners are close to shore. The first 100 meters is flat water with some chop, then it’s the epic kite beach reef. This is the perfect location to learn, as there is a drop at the entrance to the beach, no shore break, and a protective reef.

Bozo Beach, Cabarete Bay

This is the main Cabarete bay, shared with windsufers and sailors.  The wind can get bit gusty and there is usually a lot of chop, and a wicked shore break that can be really dangerous. Further out on the reef the wind is steady and consistent, but it’s a long way from shore and there is no rescue service, so be sure to kite with a partner. 

La Boca, de Yasica

La Boca means the rivermouth, and it’s where the river meets the sea. It’s 6 Km East of Cabarete, through Camino del Sol.  It is a popular place to start downwinders, after a good session on the super flat water conditions.
