Description of Cabarete (Dominican Republic)

Cabarete is one of the kitesurfing most famous hotspots in the world. Once a sleepy fishing and farming village, it has grown in popularity thanks to the varied and amazing kitesurfing conditions. This village offers the best mix of kitesurfing, Caribbean vibe chill out, and local music. Kite beach is the most popular and crowded spot thanks to the small beach break, which makes access to the water easier than in other points like Bozo and Punta Goleta. Nevertheless, all spots are pretty easy and accessible. Wind normally blows from after lunch to sunset.
