Lots and lots of venders if you looking for local items to buy. If your not interested just say no thank you. The actual beach section of this beach is limited due to the tide coming in. However, there are many shade areas if that is what you like. There are MANY food and drink vendors here. We did not... More

It is a nice beach to walk but beware of the vendors they are very pushy and do not leave you alone. They do not know what NO means. Water is clear and nice for swimming, just beware

This was my first time to Dominican. Sosua was recommended by a few people. It was beautiful. Water was crystal clear and not too rough. Total paradise. There were guys renting out chairs and masks everywhere so you just walk along until you find the best spot for the best price. It was cheap! Lots of shops and places to... More

Fixed a table at a restaurant and so on. Everything at a small fee of course, nothing higher then from others, but what a service. Family... More
