The city and surrounding areas are considered among the most beautiful landscapes in the Dominican Republic. Cabrera faces primarily east, overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. Its location lends itself to an almost constant soothing breeze from the east-west trade winds. The landscape features an eclectic mix of lush foliage, palm-lined beaches, fresh-water pools, waterfalls and rivers, farmlands and cattle ranches, and many more natural attractions. The local beaches, however, get most of the attention.
