You will never want to leave this place. It's five minutes walking from the center of town, but a world of its own. Like most beaches on the north coast of the island, it's never crowed. There's a restaurant and bar overlooking the beach in...More

This is a lovely small beach in Sosua. It’s much quieter and tranquil than Sousa Beach. There are chairs and umbrellas to rent and a snack bar above the beach. Swimming here is very nice.

I liked Sosua Beach very much, but the other reviewers are correct - this one is less crowded. It's pretty in its own right. There is not as much here in the way of food or drink, but that's a trade off for a less...More

DO NOT SWIM at Alicia Beach if the surf is rough. Go to Sosua Beach and you will find safer water, Still can knock you down, however you have a reduced chance of undertow.
