INTRO

With more than 300 sunfilled days every year and an average temperature between 25-30°C (80-90°F), this is a perfect place for both sports freaks as for sunloving lazybones. Except of the beautiful beaches, palm tree lines and white sand there are views of the lush tropical mountains all around.

There is great surfing, kitesurfing, windsurfing, amazing beaches and a throbbing Caribbean nightlife.

Cabarete, a beautiful small town, lies on a strip of land with the Atlantic Ocean on one side and the lagoon and mountains of El Choco National Park on the other.

In the evening Cabarete converts to a romantic scenery with hundreds of candle lit tables on the beach and from about 10 p.m. it is party time in Cabarete, which continues until early in the morning.

In the town you can find everything you need: banks, ATMs, exchange places, supermarket, souvenir shops, many nice bars and restaurants.

Except of surfing, kitesurfing, windsurfing and SUP the number of things and activities to do and see are virtually endless in Cabarete and the surrounding areas. Horseback riding, expeditions by car or motorbikes to beautiful sights, canyoning, rafting, cascading, mountain biking, caves and national parks and many other things.

 

CAMP

Set on El Choco National Park's tropical lagoon in “Pro Cab”, a gated neighborhood in Cabarete, the camp is only minutes away from Cabarete's main beach and center of town, yet far enough away that the guests are able to relax in a peaceful and safe environment. A small river goes through camp's old tropical garden into a beautiful natural lagoon. The swimming-pool lays in the shade of coconut palms and has a great lawn with sun chairs for sunbathing.

Camp has a wide variety of accommodations that can satisfy any budget.

Cottages and bungalows are cheap and affordable lodging alternatives for solo travelers on a low budget.

High standard studios and apartments (one bedroom, two bedroom or 2 bedroom deluxe) are great for singles travelers, couples or families looking for a comfortable place to stay.

Authentic Caribbean houses, the Tarzan and River houses, are perfect for any guests.

The Tower, our latest addition, offers a truly unique lodging in Colonial rooms. As you sleep above the tree tops and look down onto the surf camp grounds and out onto the tropical lagoon, you'll know you made the right choice. The Tower is now becoming one of the most talked about attractions in Cabarete.

Restaurant serves breakfasts and dinners. In the evening it is also a popular meeting point for many locals who appreciate our great food and cocktails famous in Cabarete and throughout the whole Caribbean.

Kite camp beach house is a restaurant/bar in Cabarete you can hang out at day or night – or both. It's located less than a kilometer east of Cabarete, right on the ocean. Beach House is a great spot for kiteboarding, it offers an amazing atmosphere with great music, fabulous food and thirst-quenching drinks, BBQs, beach parties with camp fires, and dancing until sunrise..

 

SURF

The surf school is located on the north shore of the Dominican Republic at Encuentro Beach, just 10 minutes drive away from the camp.  

Encuentro Beach has one of the most famous reef breaks on the North Shore.  In winter the beach has a north swell, and in summer it has both east and north-east swells.  With its excellent conditions for surfers of all levels, it is truly the ideal spot for anyone to learn, practice and improve their surfing skills.

The school has a collection of 100 different epoxy and fiberglass surfboards and a group of friendly, professional instructors that teach all levels of surfing. Our instructors will give you advice on which surfboards to use, inform you about wave conditions and will have you up on your board in no time.

The school is just steps from the waves and has:    

  • Two surf shacks with a collection of over one hundred different boards.
  • Experienced, professional team of instructors
  • Hammocks for relaxing
  • Lockers for your belongings and a guard who watches over them

KITE

Cabarete has perfect conditions for any level kitesurfing - waves, flatwater, strong wind and light wind.

Kite Center is located on beautiful Cabarete Bay, couple of minutes walking from the camp.

The Trade Winds blow from the northeast, meaning you get excellent side shore winds from the right. Good wind for kitesurfing starts around noon, ranging from 4 6 Beaufort and provide the ideal conditions for beginners, intermediate to expert level kiters. An outside reef, approximately 800m from shore, protects the bay, leaving the swell inside relatively flat, perfect to learn kitesurfing in Cabarete. When there is big swell, the reef and outside reef areas can provide waves of up to 3 meters in height reef for the more experienced kitesurfers.

The kiteboarding school is a school with a reputation for it's open and friendly atmosphere. Courses are available in English, German, Spanish, French, Italian, Russian etc. and suitable for all levels of kiters. For experienced kiters we offer storage and equipment rental.

Latest EH bowkites and boards for any level of kitesurfing and type of kitesurfing conditions are available. The kitecenter is equipped with bathrooms where you can change, a freshwater shower for after kiting, and a place to hang your harness after a day on the water.
