Sosua Beach is tranquil yet exciting place to visit! Beautiful rock formations set the scene off to the distance with beautiful sandy beach..and crystal clear water!

“Everything as expected”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2014

I compare beaches to Waikiki and others on Oahu, so this one is ok, but nothing special. Of course the beach is cleaned every morning by staff, otherwise the coconuts and palm leaves would be right beside you.

“No judgment zone”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2014

Not a family friendly or conservative beach and only good for the extremely liberal, risky, and DFW kinda traveller. Let's just say some countries sell art, food, and jewelry, but this beach serves up a different menu.
Now I know why some of my co-workers visit frequently.
Not my speed and I wanted to leave ASAP before I caught anything airborne lol

“Good snorkeling. Nice beach. Tons of vendors.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2014

This beach is very nice. It's pretty clean with very good snorkeling. Water is very clear and blue. Don't go on a Sunday - it'll be overcrowded. Sunday is the day everyone in the area goes to the beach!!! Lots of restaurants and market type shops with jewellery, clothes, and other Dominican souvenirs. (Don't forget to barter with the locals!) Everyone is very friendly.
