Cabarete, Dominican Republic

Boca ChicaCabarete has developed an international reputation as host to major windsurfing competitions. With its six kilometers of beach, it offers hotels and condominiums and enjoys a prosperous community life. The land surrounding Cabarete originally belonged to a wealthy colonial landowner of the Davila and Coca family. The name Cabarete appeared for the first time in the early 1800’s. A large portion of the land was eventually acquired by Zephaniah Kingsley, a rich plantation owner married to an African, Anna Majigeen. After departing from a Florida torn apart with racial tension, Kingsley started his own colony in Cabarete in 1836, with his mulatto family and freed blacks who worked the land. He built a mahogany house for his Anna overlooking the sea at Cabarete, and often returned to this paradise he created far from the racial unrest of other lands.
