Sosua Beach is a neat little beach shopping strip but oh my lord one gets tired of repeating "No gracias" to every vendor along the strip.

I love the beach, the water was very mild and warm,,Did not like all the vendor up from the beach so if go to Sosua Beach just stay walking on the beach. and don't sit down on a chair, if you do you have to pay for it.

Sosua Beach used to be fantastic. It has lost sand, looks dirty, and is bordered by an abandoned hotel. Desperately needs TLC. Not recommended unless you only want to drink beer and pick up hookers.

If you want the hustle, massagers, shops, hawkers, go to Sosua playa. If not, playa Alicia is more quit and more beautiful.
