Surfing, kiteboarding and windsurfing; the Dominican Republic's north coast is a very rare find in the water sports world as you have the perfect conditions for all three, and all just minutes from the Coconut Palms Resort. The international "Master Of The Ocean" tournament is held every year at Encuentro, with competitors scoring points in all three sports to win the title.
Playa Encuentro is the most reliable and accessible surf in the area and nearby Cabarete is home to a thriving community of young Europeans, Americans and Canadians who have come for one thing; the surf at Encuentro. Just after sunrise, you'll witness a steady stream of surfers and their boards making their way down the hill to the sea on foot, on motorbike and in trucks to spend a couple of hours catching the waves. If you want to join them, the beach front is home to a small number of very friendly surf schools where you can hire a board and take lessons, both at very reasonable prices.
In the afternoons, the wind picks up and supplies the perfect conditions for kiteboarders and windsurfers. Our front desk staff can help you arrange equipment rental and lessons! You won't regret having a go.
If after all that you still haven't had enough of the water, we have a team of scuba diving instructors who will let you have a taster session in our pool and if you enjoy it, diving trips at sea can be arranged.
Activities don’t stop when the sun goes down; every other night our Palm Room Restaurant offers entertainment in the form of live music, magic shows and our very popular Dominican Fiesta where you will have the opportunity to sample authentic Dominican music and cooking.
On the evenings without resort entertainment, you have the chance to enjoy a peaceful evening at the restaurant and Tiki Bar, or join one of our pre-arranged trips into nearby Cabarete, which offers the best nightlife on the North Coast. You can pay a visit to the excellent Casino or simply stroll along the beach bars, which often don’t close until the surf’s up the next morning!
