Great people make an amazing vacation! We just finished a week at Swell and wished we had stayed longer. We are total beginners to surfing, but...
Swell Surf Camp was designed and built by us to be a perfect, surf-oriented base. We used our extensive local knowledge as long-term residents of Cabarete to chose our location very deliberately.
We are not directly on the beach (there are no real surf camps on the beach in the Dominican Republic) but we are a short, level walk to the sandy bay of Cabarete.
We chose a location where we knew our guests would have the best access to everything Cabarete has to offer + some peace and quiet when needed.
The surf spots are less than 10 minute’s drive away in our own transport (Swell guests are normally first in the water!) and we provide the surf transport to get you there and back, twice each day.
For the rest of the day and evening you can reach everything you need from Swell by foot.
Some people ask us why Swell is not at the surf beach? That is honestly answered; there’s absolutely nothing to do there other than surf and we wanted to make sure you were next to all the bars and restaurants, every time you wanted to explore and have fun.
Cabarete Bay, the beach for kite-surfing and windsurfing, is less than a 5 minute level walk, the restaurants are close (one is our immediate neighbour) and four more of Cabarete`s most popular eateries are within 200 meters.
In fact, within a 10 minute walk you will have the choice of all Cabarete's restaurants and bars, many of which are right on the beach.
Swell sits at the base of the Parque National El Choco and you can enjoy some beautiful sunsets over this range of hills.
If you fancy a shopping trip, just walk from Swell into town to explore the many clothing, jewellery and souvenir shops on offer.
