Cabarete beach offers many options for ocean sports enthusiasts. One of the most popular sports here in the Dominican Republic is kiteboarding and here you will find several schools to choose from, for lessons and rentals alike.

Cabarete is the ideal location for kiteboarding, offering consistent side shore winds and consistent waves. In fact, it is one of the most popular kiteboarding destinations in the world. On a windy day, you will see a sky full of colorful kites hovering above the water, kiteboarders jumping and twisting in the air or surfing at high speeds across the turquoise waters.

Cabarete beach is a paradise for those who love the sea and warm waters of the Caribbean. There are many options for those looking to rent or purchase a condominium or home near the water, making it convenient to take advantage of the many activities and sports available.

Making your way west on Cabarete beach you will find several excellent kitesurfing schools. Here is my favorite and learn about other schools as well.

Special kiteboarding trips to a beach called Buen Hombre are offered by this amazing group of kites. Buen hombre is a wonderful unspoiled fisherman town west of Puerto Plata, and 35 km away from Monte Cristi, on the north coast of the Dominican Republic.

Many of the schools are managed by foreigners who have come to the Dominican Republic to find a relaxed lifestyle, either renting or purchasing a beautiful home when they settle here.

There are some other kiteboarding spots on the north coast of the Dominican Republic. You can, for instance, go to Playa Bergantine which is located between Sosua and Puerto Plata. However, one of the best kitesurfing spots on the north coast of the Dominican Republic is most certainly Buen Hombre. A 3-hour drive from Cabarete, this quaint little fishing town boasts some of the best beaches around. With frequent windy days at around 30 knots, flat and crystal clear waters await you. But don’t take our word for it, just look at the pictures below to get an idea of what it’s like.
