“A place to party and to windsurf”
Reviewed 2 August 2014

If you're looking for nightlife, Cabarete offers one of the best options in the whole country. The beach is one of the best in the world for windsurfing. Not so great as a bathe and suntan beach...the wind will probably get to you after a while...

“Consistent Wind”
Reviewed 6 July 2014

If you're into wind sports, this beach and this entire stretch of the north coast will do nicely. I found a nice consistent afternoon wind keeps the waves big enough to be playful but not too big (unless a storm is blowing in) so they're great for beginners of all sorts: surfing, boogie-boarding, etc. The bay is quite long, the west end seems to be the key launching point for kiters but the central and east ends where the public hang out most.

A sunset walk here can last for hours; so take your time and enjoy it! I love this beach and Cabarete in particular.

WARNING: I was hit by a really random and huge rogue wave in the central part of the beach during the onset of a storm. Water conditions here in the shallow part of the bay can change fairly quickly in such cases so just keep an eye out for dramatic weather blowing in.

“Not the greatest beach but lovely nonetheless”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

Wind was fierce for kite sailers. The beach is beautiful but littered with sales people hocking jewelry, shells, etc.
