“Very friendly town”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 May 2014

It was my 1st visit to Cabarete, It was very entertaining. It caters to the young crowds, so young adults will enjoy it most. Would travel there again with my teen nieces and nephew.

“Great beach for most people”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2014

Although we have never stayed in a hotel on Cabarete beach, we have visited many times. The Hotel we stay at is not far away. It is a long beach that actually goes for Kilometers in both directions. However what is actually called Cabarete beach is a wide crescent of sand and surf fronting the town of Cabarete. A few years ago, they pumped more sand onto it that was lost to erosion. There is now plenty of space to play or lie in the sun. There are several walkways between the hotels to the main street of Cabarete which allows access to restaurants and shops. If you desire, there are also restaurants right at the beach. You can rent a lounge chair, buy a drink or other things from vendors right on the beach.

The water is ok for playing in near the shoreline. However it is not good for serious swimming. Keep in mind that because of the windy conditions offshore much of the time, this beach is considered a destination for windsurfers and kite boarders. They are very considerate though, of those playing in the shallows. Just keep an eye out for any novices that lose control.

There are competitions from time to time and usually a sand castle contest every year.

We personally like a more secluded and quieter beach to spend our time on, but it's fun to visit when we're in the mood. If you like activity and more people, then you will enjoy it.

Paradise is the best was to describe the beach. The beach is clean and the sand is nice. Rent a chair and stay on the beach all day if you like. Lots of places to eat rite on the beach or you can sit inside. From kite surfing to horse back riding or just people watching. Cabarete Beach is as relaxing or as active as you want it to be.
