CABARETE

Cabarete is the windsurfing and kiteboarding resort of the north coast, particularly loved by fans of watersports because of the surfing, windsurfing and kiteboarding centres where you can take lessons and hire equipment. If you need something more relaxed what could be better than to ponder along the beach and stop at one of the many restaurants for a refreshing cocktail, a bite to eat and then people watch. As a reflection of the sporty nature of Cabarete, in early 2018 the new hotel resort Club Aldiana Cabarete will be inaugurated.
