Usually when picking a kitesurf spot, I have to give up on some comforts or activities I like to do besides kitesurfing, but this former fisherman’s village that has become one of the world’s most renowned watersports destinations really has it all. It ticks all the boxes for action junkies, boardsports lovers and those in need of an activity-filled vacation: kitesurfing, windsurfing, surfing, SUP Yoga, outdoor gyms with CrossFit, as well as yoga studios with ocean views are just some of the activities you can enjoy in Cabarete.
Cabarete is for all levels of riders
This spot is ideal for all levels of kitesurfing — whether you want to learn kitesurfing, want to boost higher with the small kickers that are building up on the reef, or want to ride some waves on a strapless board. For the downwind lovers, there are some nice options as well: either going from the river mouth (and tiny lagoon) La Boca to Kite Beach or going from Kite Beach to the surf spot Encuentro, which offers some beautiful waves.
Wave lovers will enjoy it more in the winter months as the swell is usually bigger while the wind is moderate. In the summer months, there’s some stronger winds with smaller waves.
