Cabarete Kitebeach Wind-forecast ( 11 Days )
Wind speeds and weather forecasted are for the afternoon of each day (and not for the rest of the day)
The Wind in this area
Cabarete is well-known as one of the best windsurfing spots around the World since 1984.
If iwindsurf or windfinder would be right with their forecast Cabarete would not be what it is today.
The damage these sites are doing to Cabarete with their forecast is enormous.
Kitebeach spot conditions
The wind on Kitebeach is side onshore, from the right. The water is usually quite flat. On most days, the reef protects the beach from larger waves. There is a nice Riff-brake 400 m (1200 feet) away from the shore. (2 – 5 feet in summer and 3 – 9 feet in fall and winter).
The wind starts is the morning with a moderate breeze and increases in the early afternoon to 14 – 24 knots and in winter and 17 – 30 knots in summer. The kite sizes we use are between 8 – 16.
From 11am, it’s the best place for beginners to learn kiteboarding and becomes an awesome place to ride for those who are more advanced in the afternoon as the wind strength picks up.
Kitebeach is farther out than Cabarete Bay and therefore we do not have issues with a wind shadow. The wind is stable and consistent, allowing riders to launch their kites and plane immediately from the beach. The water temperature is around 27°C (81°F). Kitebeach has less shore break than Cabarete Bozo Beach and you are not kiting between non kiteboarding swimmers in front of Viva resort.
In late early morning (6 to 10am) and on no wind days, the waters of Kitebeach are an ideal place for jogging, swimming, snorkeling, stand up paddle boarding, surfing, body boarding, kayaking, and more. The beach is ideal if you have kids until 10 or 11 am as there is very little shore-break, clean warm water, with an uncrowded, nice sandy beach. If the wind is strong and all Kiteboarders are out, your kids and family can enjoy the safe and beautiful tropical garden with pool and beach restaurant of Kitebeach-Hotels. It’s best to not let you kids play on the beach during the Kiteboarding hours 11 to 6 pm, as it gets very busy with kites and can be dangerous for little ones.
