An Evening on the Beach – Cabarete, DR

After all of the commotion from Semana Santa and the wedding, we decided to take a break and spend the afternoon having some fun on a secluded beach.

The main beaches in town were jam packed with people so we took a little ten minute drive to find a place with significantly less people. The most enjoyable time to be on the beach is during the early morning or evenings. There are less people, the sun isn’t as harsh and the light is simply beautiful.

We started off by taking a quick dip in the ocean and proceeded to have a sand castle building competition, all in good fun of course =D.

As the sun started to set over the horizon I saw a great opportunity for a photo essay, shadows creating interesting silhouettes. I had everyone get creative and run, jump, and play, as well as come together for some really cool ideas. Here are the results:

To finish off the shenanigans we took another quick dip to refresh ourselves before going home to grub on some delicious food!

There are countless things that you can do on the beach. From building sand castles to simply laying out on the sand and reading a good book. What are some of your favorite beach activities?
