The north coast of the Dominican Republic is on the Atlantic side, and thus the sea is more suitable for energetic watersports than for novice swimmers. Windsurfers, particularly in Cabarate, will be in seventh heaven. All beaches in the country are public, and in this area they are of coarse sand.
