Cabarete is renowned for its wind and water sports, especially kite surfing and regular board surfing. A beautiful and festive spot to spend a couple of days, you should travel to Cabarete comes when exploring the Puerto Plata province. The beach strip of Cabarete is especially good for nightlife (as long as you are not too demanding when it comes to music) and a restaurant that absolutely cannot to be missed is La Casita de Papi; located right on the beach, it serves the best lobster and prawns you will ever sample. Although the restaurant is no fancy affair, the seafood is cooked to perfection.
Located two to three hours' drive from Puerto Plata and about 15 minutes from Sosua on the north coast, Carbarete doesn't have much to see or do in the way of Dominican culture, but its relaxed and festive atmosphere is its main draw.
At the weekends, the beach strip is the place to be, especially during the much celebrated Semana Santa at the end of March, when the area is completely crowded with Dominicans migrating north away from the cities for the most important holiday of the year.
East of Cabarete centre is Kite Beach, where board sport aficionados and professionals flock to from all four corners of the globe for some year-round action. After Kite Beach is Encuentro, a beach mainly for surfing with a handful of surf shacks lining the beach and local surfers to help visitors get kitted out.
The village of Callejon, located a short drive inland is where you will find a more authentic Dominican lifestyle. The lagoon here is home to a large variety of bird species. The village is also a good area to escape for a fix of Dominican food and to dance to local Merengue and Bachata music
