Cabarete, known as the Dominican Republic’s water sports mecca, is the perfect place to learn and practice all water sports including windsurfing, kitesurfing, and surfing right on our doorstep. With wind and waves 300 days per year, you’ll be sure to have killer arms and abs by the end of your stay. There are tonnes of activities and tours available and with the sun shining; you won’t need much encouragement to head outside! For those looking for something a little more tranquilo, there’s no better way to admire the golden sandy beaches and turquoise waters than taking a stroll. It’s the scenic route and is most beautiful at sunrise and sunset. Walking and running on sand burns 50% more calories than on a flat paved surface AND exfoliates your feet at the same time.

2. Sunshine

Vitamin D is plentiful here in sunny Cabarete and has been shown to help improve Calcium and Phosphate absorption needed for your teeth and bones, autoimmune response, mood and has also been known to treat several skin conditions such as eczema and acne. Sunlight also cues special areas in the retina, which triggers the release of serotonin reducing depression and anxiety. Sunlight has many health benefits, however, like chocolate cake, too much isn’t good for you. Make sure if you’re out in the sun you’re using sun protection, staying well hydrated and you can take shelter under one of our many palm trees in the yard.

3. Stress Free
