#1 Cabarete

Cabarete used to be quaint fishing village; now, it's a high-geared getaway for the jet set. You should consider planning a day or two's worth of activities in this town east of Puerto Plata, where you'll find the best kitesurfing and windsurfing beaches, not to mention a smattering of bars and restaurants.

The town's big claim to fame is Kite Beach. Other popular shores include Bozo Beach (about 5 minutes from downtown Cabarete) or Encuentro Beach. Most of the surf breaks are too rough for first-timers, but never fear, Cabarete also has about 10 kitesurfing schools where you can learn the craft. Recent visitors loved watching the kite surfers, as well lounging on the gorgeous beach. They also mentioned there are plenty of places to eat and drink.
