The water of sosua bay is crystal clear and very calm most of the times. There is many attractions that can be done at this beach as well of many good meals and food that can be enjoyed. Sometimes it is crowded.. but most of the time it is a perfect place to spend the time while in puerto plata.

This beach is fun as it has many little cabins where the locals sell their wares and food, it makes for a great island atmosphere. You can also do paddleboarding, scubadiving or just relax and enjoy the sun and the water.

The beach is beautiful, but it's always crowded and full of street vendors. It's more like a commercial place lately.
