Where are you located?

Swell is located just a three-minute level walk to the main sandy bay of Cabarete, and a ten-minute drive in our own transporation to the surf beach. We placed Swell very deliberately; not at the surf beach because there is nothing there to do once surfing is over and getting back to town for restaurants, the main beach, shops etc. is a real pain. Driving standards are poor in the DR and if you were at the surf beach, you would want to be getting into Cabarete often. We prefer to have a professional driver, well used to road and local driving conditions, take you to surf each day, and for you to be able to walk safely elsewhere. It’s not an accident why we are where we are.

  • Think of Swell as the anti-surf camp. There’s plenty of surfing, of course, but the similarities to other surf camps end there. For starters, the rooms are stylish — more boutique surf retreat than reggae-loving surfer digs. Then there are the legendary breakfasts (omelets, pancakes and crepes, fresh-squeezed orange juice, and fruit bowls). Structured surf lessons take place each morning, with an instructor alongside you and the head surf coach watching from shallow water, ready to offer learn to surf tips between riding waves. If you are serious about learning to surf, then Swell should be on top of your destination list. Highly recommended!

    Designed with the discerning surfer in mind, Swell is far from a crash pad. The spare clean lines, plush bedding, modern photographs and funky furniture say ‘boutique surf retreat’ but the pool, ping-pong and foosball tables and social vibe suggest otherwise. A huge wood communal table is the center of the hanging-out action, after all the surfing is done. Highly recommended!
