The best Surf Camp in the Dominican Republic!

Short Story

Cabarete Surf Camp, also known as Ali’s Surf Camp, is one of the best known surf camps in the Dominican Republic. Multiple travel magazines have written about us, including Lonely Planet , who selected us as being on of their top choices.

In 1994, Ali and his wife Conny, came here and experienced this tropical paradise for the first time. They immediately knew they wanted to create a way for other travelers to enjoy this small piece of paradise in Cabarete. They decided to create Cabarete Surf Camp and the famous restaurant Ali’s Restaurant.

Surf Camp Philosophy

With Cabarete Surf Camp, Ali and Conny wanted to create an entirely new way for travelers to spend their vacation.

Their goal was to bring people together from different countries and cultures to share their interests while experiencing an unforgettable time surfing, kiteboarding and other activities. They have succeeded. Now, run by an international team with years of experience working together, Cabarete Surf Camp has built up an impeccable reputation and has become well known within the international surfing community
