Uncovering Paradise: Exploring Encuentro Beach in the Dominican Republic


Welcome to paradise! With its crystal-clear waters, pristine sandy beaches, and endless sunshine, Encuentro Beach in the Dominican Republic is a true haven for beach lovers and surf enthusiasts alike.


 A trendy, bohemian, healthy vibe…

Nestled along the country’s northern coast, Encuentro Beach is a hidden gem that offers an escape from the tourist crowds and a chance to immerse yourself in the beauty of nature. Whether you’re looking to catch the perfect wave or simply unwind on the shore, this stunning beach has something for everyone.

Known as one of the best surf spots in the Caribbean, Encuentro Beach has long been loved by surfers.  Competitions like Masters of the Ocean are held here every year.  Other watersports, like standup paddleboarding, are also very popular.  

Don’t worry if surfing isn’t your thing – Encuentro offers so much more than just watersports!  The area is a perfect Caribbean gem and offers plenty of opportunities for relaxation and rejuvenation. From beach walks to sunset dinners, to local community events, you can be as busy, or as quiet as you’d like. 

As an area, Encuentro is growing rapidly – a hidden gem that is now becoming the “it” spot in the area.



Nestled between the towns of Sosua and Cabarete, Encuentro is just a short drive to larger shopping, restaurants and services like medical care and dentists.  The little community offers its own restaurants – both on and off the beach, small shopping, trendy shops and a large community of eclectic Dominicans and expats who simply love the area and all it offers.  Over time, more services will take root and anchor Encuentro even more as THE destination spot in the DR.

Real estate is booming!

Encuentro offers a diverse range of properties.  From stand alone villas to large condo developments like The Wave and Connections, there is something in every price range and for every stage of life.  Rentals are very profitable due to the beauty and charm of the area and watersports – surfers and other water enthusiasts rent every year!
