About Playa Encuentro
Main surfing beach for Cabarete. There's 3 different breaks and almost always surf regardless of swell direction. Very popular for downwinders from Cabarete Bay or Kitebeach. The best place to launch and land is just past the main large hotel just downwind of the surf camps. You can kite to the shore just behind the rocks and sandbar without hitting any rocks or worrying about sea urchins.
Grab a beer at the restaurant right there and they'll call for a cab or moto back to cabarete.
