EL CABITO RESTAURANT & ACCOMMODATION
El Cabito (“small cape” in English) is close to one of the most beautiful beaches in the Caribbean: Madama Beach. It is located between Las Galeras and Samaná Cape, perched on a sea cliff overlooking Rincón Bay and next to a protected area.
The Samaná Peninsula is famous for its majestic natural environment and at El Cabito we take care of: our own farm, eco-friendly business and fruit trees according to local knowledge (which is partly based on bio-dynamic gardening). Noni grows wild at El Cabito and has been proven to reduce tumors, being trumpeted by many as beneficial for many other ailments.
Take a look at our long list of nature activities, lush flora and fauna, geological points of interest, remnants of the ancient culture of the Taíno Indians and the folklore of the pirates of the Caribbean.
EL CABITO AIR VIEW
El Cabito has its very own Boca del diablo (Mouth of the devil). Ocean waves push air and water through cracks in the 30-feet tall cliffs and depending on the mood of the sea it sounds like the earth is breathing or the devil has been disturbed.
While you relax at your table you will see the thrill-seekers jumping off the cliff from El Cabito, the power of the sea or, every day, an incredible sunset.
Within a five-minute walk from El Cabito you can explore a cave, take a refreshing dip in the rock pools, scale a volcanic cliff face and follow the protected path to Madama Beach along the sea.
Enjoy an unforgettable spectacle watching the Humpback whales gathering at the Samaná Bay to mate. Nearly one thousand of them stop by El Cabito between January and March. You can see them from the shore or in a boat.
Dive in the famous Cabrón Cape, one of the best dive sites on the North Coast where you can see world-class coral reefs, dive in an underwater cave or explore a wreck. You can also snorkel the reefs from the beach, or take a boat trip to snorkel and dive sites.
Discover Frontón Beach, one of the most beautiful rock climbing spots in the Dominican Republic. It is very close to Las Galeras and has several routes to attempt, a true challenge if you want.
Fish in the shallows or deep sea fish at about 6000 feet just two km away from shore, with the local fishermen. It can be a great experience and maybe you will catch the fish of your dreams.
And so on! El Cabito is an ideal base for various hikes to discover the incredible natural environment and astonishing wildlife. We provide experienced guides. You can rely on our experience.
