Playa Cabarete: Windsurfing in the Dominican Republic
This post is also available in: Español (Spanish)
Samaná is a lovely peninsula in the north of the Dominican Republic. It is a virgin oasis of the Dominican Atlantic. It is one of the most welcoming parts of the Dominican Republic, where you can forget about time and watch life go by from
its idyllic beaches.
You will fall in love forever when you come here: Playa Rincón, Las Terrenas, Salto del Limón Waterfall… and such charming towns as Los Pescadores, where you can find the most exciting night life in the area.
The history of this friendly and humble peninsula goes back a long way, where colourful traditional houses, lush green forests and peaceful coconut trees provide the perfect backdrop on beaches that will delight anyone who comes here.
What to do on holiday in Samaná?
Samaná is home to some spectacularly beautiful jewels of nature that will absolutely take your breath away, including the beaches of Cosón, Las Galeras, Cayo Levantado, El Valle, Punta Bonita… But if you are looking for waves and a good vibe to enjoy windsurfing, we recommend you visit Playa Cabarete.
Playa de Cabarete is a large bay where the morning winds help beginners get started in this sport. What starts as a gentle breeze in the morning gets stronger as the day goes by, meaning that the conditions become best at midday for more professional windsurfers. This beach has become an important benchmark for the practice of water sports. Thanks to the incredible natural conditions offered by the beach, it has successfully positioned itself among the top ten beaches in the world for kitesurfing and windsurfing. Playa de Cabarete is a living beach where you can interact with local people and discover both the customs and spectacular nature of the Dominican Republic.
Why visit Playa de Cabarete?
Because the waves here are perfect. If you decide to visit between December and March, the waves in Bahía de Cabarete seem tailor-made for windsurfing. Practice your 360º spins and jumps or simply get started in this sport. If you want to see windsurfers performing all sorts of stunts and tricks, we recommend coming in June. The international Cabarete Race Week windsurfing event includes an exciting windsurf competition.
This and many more experiences can be enjoyed from the hotels in Samaná, such as the incredible view to be seen from the Puente de los Cayos. Bahia Principe Luxury Samaná is only three hours by car from Playa de Cabarete. Bahia Principe hotels offer exceptional locations, direct access to amazing beaches, views to die for, spacious rooms, exquisite gastronomy and much more.
