Dorado Beach

Discover the Adrenaline Side of Dorado Beach

Though we pride ourselves on being the ultimate Caribbean destination for relaxation, Dorado Beach Resort & Club offers a little something extra to get the blood pumping, in the form of Goodwinds Watersports.

Learning to Surf Puerto Rico

About Goodwinds

Located on Barlovento at East Beach Goodwinds is a family owned watersports company that offers one of the most extensive water sports programs for kids and adults in Puerto Rico. Goodwinds features a wide array of short courses and experiences, as well as lessons and programs for those who wish to learn sailing, kitesurfing or windsurfing.

Watersport Programs

Goodwinds offers state of the art facilities, equipment and some of the highest regarded instructors of the industry. Additionally, Dorado Beach is blessed with one of the best kitesurfing destinations in the world with warm waters, consistent winds year round and options such as the inner bay with flat water and the outer reef with world class waves.

Sailing and Windsurfing
Sailing can bring you relaxing days on the water, adventurous family fun or challenging competition. They also have several options for those looking to sail, from a simple 1-hour sailing ride with an instructor to a full length 12 hour U.S. Sailing Course, where students become U.S. Sailing Certified.

Paddle Boarding
The popular sport of Stand Up Paddle Boarding (SUP) is a fun, easy way to go play on the water. With minimal equipment, guests can paddle anything from ocean surf to lakes and rivers; no waves required. And since you're standing at your full height, you might be so lucky to see our local manatee, Bob, or just enjoy the beautiful Dorado Beach sunset.

There are great opportunities for beginners to learn how to surf on our sandy beach break while using the soft-top surfboards provided during lessons, which are great for adults and kids as young as 4 years old. For intermediate to advanced surfers, the outer reef surf breaks (only accessible by ski or boat) can provide head-high to overhead conditions in the early mornings during surf season.


With the rest of what Dorado Beach has to offer, one day simply is not enough, so make us your Caribbean home away and live the experience at the Dorado Beach Accommodations.
