We had a great family beach day here. It's a long beach, so you can be in areas where lots of people are or secluded. It is windy, but it makes it feel comfortable when you are sitting in the sun. My boys loved jumping in the waves. We all enjoyed watching the kite surfers-many of whom did amazing tricks and would zoom around the boys. At one point, we counted over 60 kites in the sky. It made for a fun day in many ways.

Cabarete is beautiful, we stayed outside of town at Kite Beach and at Orilla Del Mar and took the guagua into Cabarete or walked occasionally. Cabarete beach has the most restaurants, shopping, and nightlife. We found ourselves there quite often and found it easy to get around once we figured it out.

This expansive beach is not crowded, but not empty either. There are lots of kite boarders to watch, 30-40 spread over a wide are. Beautiful and entertaining to watch. The wave action can be quite vigorous at times but fun to fight. Watch for some undertow in certain conditions and places.

Went to watch the kite boarders and windsurfers, while enjoying the sunshine. Had a wonderful beachside bed, and really enjoyed watching the activities all around us. There were some beach vendors, but like most Dominicans, they were very friendly and polite. We ate a wonderful meal at the Calypso restaurant right on the beach. I had an excellent fettucine Alfredo, which was very creamy and flavorful. The service was good too. This is a fun beach to visit, but often not great for swimming as there can be large waves and many boards on the water. We were there a second evening later in the week, when the waves were much calmer, and we could have swum had we brought our suits... but from what I’ve heard, this is more unusual for this beach.

I went to the DR for springbreak with a group of friends and had the best time of my life. The weather was unbelievable. I got increadibly tan, and the sun was prefect, not too hot at all. The people were gorgeous and I met people from all over the world. I stayed at Viva Tangerine which is a new resort. It was amazing, so nice. Beautiful rooms, decent food, good service. The nightlife in Cabarete is superb. 4 major clubs right in a row on the beach. Cheap drinks, good music. I can't wait to go back. Reccommend it to anyone.

I went to Cabarete the first week of June 2004 to windsurf. I made my hotel reservations and windsurfing package through Vela Windsurf Resort (velawindsurf.com). The reservation staff in the US was excellent. They can answer any questions you have about the properties available. This was only the second time for me to windsurf, so I got the beginner's package. This was offered at a discount and included one free lesson. After my first lesson, I could use the equipment anytime I wanted. Several staff were on hand to answer questions and assist with the equipment. They also have a bar where you can get an EXCELLENT meal and drinks and such. And at the store you can buy windsurfing gear, as well as, souveniers. Be sure to make your windsurfing reservations (even if you won't be booking your accomodations through them) before you arrive. You definitely get a better deal if you take care of it ahead of time. The windsurfing staff and facilites were the best in the area. Several places had either equipment that looked old and severly used or the staff couldn't communicate clearly. The Vela windsurf staff speak several languages and welcome all types of people. You don't have to have any experience to have a great time. Don't miss the Vela Windsurf Center!

This is a very beautiful beach, however I just wanted to bring to light an urgent problem. It concerns some of the tour operators doing horse back riding tours from Cabarete beach to Encuentro beach.
Please do not pay for your horse riding tour until you have seen the condition of the horses you are about to ride. Please make sure that you ask to see the horses with their saddles off before you choose to ride. Many are in dire condition with open saddles sores and malnourished. This is much harder to see with a saddle already on. If a provider cares about his horses he should have no problem letting you see the animal with the saddle off.
The following pictures are hard to see. These animals got this way because tourist continue to ride them. Please put a stop to this.
There are many good outfits in town, so make an informed decision, don't continue to contribute to this abuse!!!!

Our family visited Cabarete for two weeks Dec.\04. We had a wonderful time on the beach, checking out the small shops, resturants, grocery stores and nightclubs. We staying at the windsurf resort which can be traded into through interval international. It is a smaller, very friendly resort with pool, bar, resturant and bbq area. A great place to get away and relax!!
