Dont come here with money or any items unless you want them stolen. Restaurants bug you to go visit them. People bug you to buy products they have.

The beach was great. Typical vendors trying to sell goods. But they do accept no when you say it. Food and drinks offered on beach were good and at a fair price

When you go to Sosua beach you have to know that it is full of restaurants and chair renters. When you rent a chair you get offers of manicures, pedicures and massages. But still it is a pretty cool beach.

Beautiful beach with ample room for everyone. Many food kiosks and tshirt shacks. Get a massage on the beach or sample the various beach vendors selling almonds, cashews, shrimp, oysters, cookies! Great mix of tourists and locals give the beach an exotic feel rather than the sterile antiseptic feel from resort only beaches. Fewer people on the beach than what... More

Visited Amber Cove cruise terminal on P & Os Azura and 9 of us decided to go to a beach, after a negotiation discussion with the taxi dispatcher we jumped into two taxis and headed for Sosua ( sa sewer ) a little further time wise than we would normally do around 45 mins but it was well worth it...

We would stroll down there every morning, stop for a beer at one of the stalls and wander back to our hotel. LOVE LOVE LOVE!

Go to the Haitian food hut half way down the beach for the best drink ever. Piña colada in a pineapple. Also quart size cold presidente for $3 US. Ocean clear and blue and calm!
