Caribbean Islands

Dominic Republic is a true tropical surf paradise. With a multitude of reefs facing various directions, the opportunities for waves seem endless, especially in winter. Crystal clear water and amazing landscape make the surf session as memorable as the waves themselves.

Caribbean Islands

ilsurf_quandoandare_general info

Il surf

From the surfing perspective, there are many islands in the Caribbean Sea that deserve a visit, including Cuba, Jamaica, the Dominican Republic's Amber Coast, British Virgin Islands, Martinique and Guadaloupe (both overseas French territories and actually Europe), Antigua and Barbuda, Trinidad and Tobago. All these islands are linked toghether by beautiful tropical landscapes and the cultural mix, almost magical, typical of the Caribbean Sea. All these islands own high quality waves which, in order to reveal themselves, require the right amount of luck, patience and skills in those surfers who search them. These include Cane Garden Bay in the British Virgin Islands, Palmetto Point in Barbuda, Port Louis in Guadeloupe and Anse Couleuvre in Martinique. All these islands receive the best swells from the northeast, coming from the North Atlantic Ocean, although the constant E winds, blowing on these islands, generate always frequent waves but with less quality.

Quando andare

Like many other Caribbean countries, the main and the most reliable season to surf is the boreal winter (October to March), when the several low pressures in the North Atlantic generate constant swells of good quality that slope down from the North to the Caribbean Sea, bringing waves on the exposed coasts between 1 to 3 meters (4-9 feet). In summer (May to September) it often rains and the sea is mostly flat, unless a hurricane does not pass nearby, generating waves of good quality. The winds mainly blow from the East (onshore) throughout the year, especially on the islands located more easterly, such as Martinique, with a northern angle in winter and southern in summer. The ocean water is always above 20 degrees, but in winter, especially in the early morning, you may want to wear a spring wetsuit (2mm). On shallow reefs tide should not be underestimated to avoid unpleasant and painful cuts from coral.
