We have been to Sosua at least three times. It is the best beach in all of Dominican Republic and we have been to many of them. It is much more quiet than Punta Cana, not as touristy but a great place to snorkel. Look for and ask for Alfredo, he promotes the beach through Facebook and a great friend.... More

Nice clear waters. Really good for a snorkelling experience. But for my taste, it's a really crowded beach. Nice if you are in a mood of snack (lots of restaurants) and fun water activities.

This beach has beautiful water. It is lined with restaurants, bars and little shops. There are a lot of locals and people bothering you to buy stuff.

This was a family and friends day trip after the wedding. We took a tour bus and arrived there was a little walk but a very fun family day. The banana boat was available didn't go on it but those that went had a blast. The guy that sold us the beach chairs has a piña colada stand as well... More

We spent an incredible day at Sosua bay - snorkeling, sunning, eating, drinking, shopping. Such a wonderful place with wonderful people and delicious food. We agreed that we should have spent more time here if we had it.

There are some really good places to eat on the beach. Fresh fish . The harassment from vendors can be overwhelming to some. They all have the best deal want you to look in their shops. Get a table and a chair and enjoy the sites and the water. A cold beer on a hot sunny day always helps.

This was one of the highlights of our trip!!! Surrounding area is a little sketchy. You can rent a lounge chair and get some beers on the Beach.

As many reviewers have said, this is a beautiful beach. You can lounge on the beach or there are several activities you can participate in: snorkel, dive, paddle surfing, catamaran, etc. There are a number of legitimate tours and adventure groups plus 3 or 4 PADI certified dive shops around. The worst part of this beach is the vendors who... More
