On the Atlantic Ocean, Cabarete is famous for reliable trade winds, warm water and great night life. While the wind blows year round, the summer months of June – August are the most reliable for wind.
If you’d like waves with your wind, the best time is December – April. A short flight from mainland USA and only 7hrs from Europe, Cabarete is a popular year round destination for all.
Kite Beach is about 2km west, or downwind, of Cabarete. It’s a 30 min walk or a 2 min motoconcho or taxi ride. The Cabarete Webcam is located at Kite Beach.
The only places that it is not permitted to kite close to shore are from Velero, on the eastern point of Cabarete Bay, to the CNS centre down the beach, west. This area is for other water users, swimmers and the windsurf and sailing schools.
The Cabarete Kite Beach Webcam is located on kite beach Cabarete, a kite surfing, wind surfing, SUP and surfing paradise. Located on the North shore of the Caribbean Island Hispaniola, the Dominican Republic shares the island with it’s neighbour to the west, Haiti.
The webcam also installed an up-to-the-minute weather station atop the highest building at Kite Beach. The Watermark are gracious hosts to the weather station, providing wind and temperature readings 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Kite surfing or kite boarding conditions are pretty good for the whole year. November and May can be a little more rainy than the other months but trade winds are usually blowing. It’s warm enough for no wetsuit year round as well!
Best kite sizes are 7m-14m. 7m-10m for the summer months when the thermal wind adds to the trade winds. In the winter, 10m-14m will usually see you on the water.
