This town is renowned for kite surfing and wind surfing, and numerous schools offer multi-day lessons. Kite Beach is the best area for kite surfing with flatter inside water and waves, too. For the less adventurous one can stand up paddle board the lagoon or at Bozo beach
There are food options to suit every budget and taste. It is one of the benefits of having such a diverse crowd that lives in Cabarete, from all parts of the globe. Many of the restaurants are located on the beach and place beautiful cushions in chairs under the palm trees and stars for an incredible dining experience.
Indian-dominican; Blue Moon. 20 min ride from Cabarete (taxi) . You have to call before , the restaurant is small (30 - 40 ppl mx). Romantic atmoshere, wonderful sunset, delicious plate. Note that this restaurant requires a group of 8, unless they are already hosting a larger party which they are almost always willing to let you join.
Make a visit to Yamazato at Ocean Dream for surprisingly good sushi from a japanese sushi chef who now lives in Cabarete.
March 16th 2012 updates by a traveler: Alis surf camp (aka Cabarete beach hostel) has decent (and decently priced) steak (RD$400 or RD$500 depending on size) and fish (RD$350). The other dishes are not so good. If you're nice to the waitress (and the waitress is nice) she'll give you a shot of mamajagua at the end of the meal.
The best bakery (WIFI, ambience, food quality) is the Belgian one next to Banco Popular to the west of the town centre.
Gordito's serves very popular Tex-Mex food (run by a family from Florida)---burritos and bowls typically RD$110 (or RD$128 after +16% tax).
Cabarete has many watering holes and it is impossible not to find a bar, disco or restaurant to suit your taste.
There are plenty of cool gift shops to buy all kinds of things to remember your holiday and share the Caribbean spirit with people back home.
One unique idea is Mamajuana a bottle of herbs and sticks that you fill with red wine, empty, then fill with rum and honey. It's for settling the stomach after dinner and makes a very cool addition to anyone's home bar. It is said that Mamajuana is also used for male vitality.
For healthier alternatives try a T-shirt or a photo CD of you taking kiteboarding lessons!
Cabarete is known world wide as a testing ground for kite manufacturers, so you can often find slightly used kites at discounted prices. And amazingly its cheaper to rent gear then to bring your own (airlines have a $100 charge each way).
