Kite Beach

Dominican Republic




Biggest Draws

Smack-dab in one of the hottest areas of the Dominican Republic, Kite Beach has become known around the world for its waves, making it an excellent choice for those who enjoy kiteboarding, windsurfing, surfing and other adventurous water sports.

In fact, the beach plays host to the PHRA Kiteboard World Cup every June. Though it was once a tranquil fishing village, Cabarete is now a cosmopolitan destination inhabited and operated by people from around the globe.

Relax or Explore

If water sports aren’t your thing, you’ll be glad to know that Kite Beach’s soft golden sands and restful, laid-back atmosphere make it perfect for decompressing under the sun (or under the shade of a palm tree) while sipping a Presidente beer or piña colada.

Those with the energy for it can book an excursion for canyoning, mountain biking or exploring caves.

You can even brush up on your language skills at one of the town’s Spanish language schools.

Dine and Dance

Once hunger kicks in, visit one of Cabarete’s many excellent restaurants. Around dinnertime, the restaurants and bars near the town center move operations right onto the sand, so you can dine while you listen to the waves lap at the shore.

As it gets later, you might hear the bass bump a little louder, thanks to the nightlife hotspots that crank it up to get the party going for vacationers. Drink, dance and be merry—you’re on vacation!
