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.

  • There are several surf shops to rent equipment. The beach is quieter because the waves aren't for children to play in. Bring your own chair or blanket to sit on. Beautiful watching the surfers. 
  • I was several times there, very good waves and very friendly and chilled locals. Safe place to park in front of the surfschools. 
  • Surfed here. Fun waves. Wind comes in strong in the afternoon so get on it early! Locals were chill.
