Hi, I am Janet, a newcomer to the Dominican Republic, on the island of Hispaniola and will tell you where to go in Cabarete.
I was pleased to discover many fine gems in the heart of bustling Cabarete beach, on the north shore of the island. It is a nice place to start a new life and a business. Several good opportunities are available for sale.
My most recent discovery was a small stretch of beach on the east side of Cabarete which contains four interesting businesses in one convenient location, EZE Beach Bar and Restaurant, The Laser Training Center, Mistral Club Windsurfing and Carib Wind Cabarete clothing store.
EZE Beach Bar and Restaurant is a hip little open-air restaurant that offers light fare for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, as well as coffee drinks, beer, wine and mixed drinks. I find the music they play to be relaxing and soothing. Whether you are sitting enjoying a meal or drink, relaxing on a padded wooden recliner under a beach umbrella, flopped on a bean bag chair in the sand, or sitting at a shaded table with friends and family, EZE Beach Bar and Restaurant is sure to please. WiFi is available.
Next door is the Laser Training Center which is owned by Ari Barshi. At the center, Laser sailboats for rent are available by the hour or day, Laser clinics and regattas are hosted, and lessons and coaching are offered. The Laser Training Center has hosted many world-class and Olympic sailors, but also welcomes beginners, or those who simply want to improve their Laser sailing skills.
Club Mistral Windsurfing, run by Oli Habermann and Suzanna Hein, is located at the Laser Training Center and offers windsurfing rentals and lesson. They are open year round with daily hours 10 am-6 pm.
Carib Wind Cabarete clothing store is your one-stop ocean sports equipment and clothing shop. Whether it’s sunglasses, shorts and tops, dresses or flip flops you’re looking for, or kite sailing, windsurfing or sailing equipment, you’ll find it all here. Stop in and take a look around!
