i duno about this spot - i stayed in cabarete during the begining of march. waves were huge at el encuentro and sosua, but all i saw in cabarate was big chunky close out shore break. i walked the whole cove and in the two on either side of cabarate, all i saw was sloppy outer reef breaks a good 1/2 mile offshore.

Bowls - Yes. . . this spot is great!! I had get there my best bodyboarding bowls section in this country since i have been living here.Thank to the sharks and also it close out sometimes and beat you up.. the place is always empty!!

yeah right!!! - I was at east cabarete a year ago and worked all the way up and down that beach(with a boogie board). Whoever thinks their are any sharks their must have been tripping on somthing. The only thing you'll find in the water at cabarete is hundreds of kiteboarders, and further east along the break just a bunch of rich, fat, tourists. Bring a boogie board, or a log if you wanna surf their. My advice, rip it up at encuentro and surf it up early, don't forget to watch out for urchins.
