Cabrinha pro rider Susi Mai shares her favourite Cabarete hotspots.
La Boca Restaurant
This is a local Dominican shack that always amazes me with the tasty food it produces. It’s located at the river mouth (a good flatwater kitespot) and they serve pineapples in the pineapple and fresh fish caught right from under your kiteboard!
This is the perfect place for a quick healthy lunch on kitebeach. The best things are the wraps and the homemade chocolate cakes. Sometimes you need a bigger kite afterwards.
This is a restaurant located about half a mile from town with a quiet atmosphere, good wine and amazing churrasco. It’s very affordable so most of the time the place is full of kiters and surfers.
It’s a chilled-out beach bar with lots of comfy tables and couches and good specials on booze. It is usually where we start off a big night of partying.
This is the best party place in town and no matter where you start off, you usually always end up here. We call the dance floor The Pit of Doom and to this day all the inhabitants of Cabarete are glad that what happens in Onno’s, stays in Onno’s.
The only 24-hour food establishment around, conveniently located right in front of Onno’s. To a hungry drunken party person this may well be the best pizza place in the world.
This is a small hole in the wall across the street from Onno’s with locals serving drinks for next to nothing. Go there and you can find out what happens when rum is cheaper than coke.
