Encuentro Beach, Cabarete
(4.7/5 based on 170+ reviews on the web)
Consistent breaks make Encuentro Beach a true old-school surfing paradise. Rustic tree houses and the lack of modern bars and restaurants add to the hippie atmosphere of this surfing sanctuary. Drop by one of the area's professional surfing schools to learn how to control the tremendous power of water under your feet. Although completely isolated, the beach is accessible by dirt roads. Choose to start, finish, or center your holiday on a trip to Encuentro Beach by using our Cabarete trip builder.
