Picture this: A long sandy beach, steady sideshore winds (about 25 knots plus), and a shallow, waist-deep lagoon with water temps in the 80s. Welcome to El Yaque, one of the great year-round windsurfing spots in the world. Beginners can choose from several windsurfing schools, expert sailors can train for the international regattas held here in early summer - or take up the newest rush, kite-surfing. Oh, and after the sun goes down? Well, think of an energetic beach-bar-and-restaurant scene geared to the same windsurfing set.
