Encuentro Beach (Playa Encuentro) Tours and Activities
Read MoreShow Less
Dominican Republic is home to incredible stretches of white sandy beach, expansive all-inclusive resorts and stunning turquoise waters. But it’s also home to some of the Caribbean’s best surfing. Perhaps no spot in DR is better known for its serious waves than Encuentro Beach.
Several local surf schools line the beach, where strong winds mean morning is the most ideal time of day to learn. Protected waters and a vibrant local surf scene make it a top destination for travelers who want to hang ten while staying in Puerto Plata. Five unique breaks known as Coco Pipe, Bobo’s Point, La Izquierda, the Destroyer and Le Derecha offer travelers distinctly different rides, with some of the biggest waves coming from Coco Pipe and the Destroyer.
Travelers can opt to explore on their own, or sign up for learn-to surf lessons with one of the local schools, or as part of an organized tour.
The island’s top swells and major waves attract surfers every day of the week, but locals say travelers should be prepared for bigger crowds on weekends. Encuentro Beach is accessible using the coastal road from Sosua and is only about a 15-minute drive. Though conditions are typically safe, surfers may encounter sea urchins and dangerous rip tides, so it’s best to be cautious.
