The beach is beautiful, swaying palms look and sound soothing, the little shops shine with colors and smiling faces. The soft sand of Sosua’s beaches and vibrant merchants is exactly what I pictured when I dreamt up what a Dominican beach would be like. Women...More

Depending on the day you will find party vibes from the all-inclusivers and the local or visiting weekend warriors. But that aside this spot is great for snorkelling, you can take a 5 minute swim out all on your own to some not so far...More

The recent weather has damaged part of the beach which is sandstone as opposed to just sand. Was nice to walk on (great for softening feet!) Water was nice and there is a reef not far away with beautiful fish.
