Sosua beach it is one of the most beautiful beach on the North Coast of the Dominican Republic. Awesome ambience and great activities, excellent food especially the fried fish. It is absolutely worth to visit...p.s. better on a week day...weekend are very crowded!!

One of the best beaches on the North coast. A half mile long of a variety of restaurants, souvenir shops, and bars to discover. Beach chairs are available and the view of the sea is breathtaking.

The beach is nice, but you will be hounded over and over by hawkers. Not fun. Their polite, but in the slow season, they tend to linger. Too much time wasted saying "no" over and over. Go to Playa Alicia.

Sosua Beach is soooo beautiful with its cool water until the hot sun. There are always activities going on right there. Snorkeling, diving and even parties throughout the day. On sunday, families take over and the place seems so happy and carefree. Lots of shops...More

This used to be a wonderful little town, but now it's super sleazy. Everywhere you look, during the day or night, there are underaged girls with very old men.

The beach itself is absolutely wonderful; the sand is nice and clean, and the water is warm, clear and calm. The vendors in the small shops along the beach are ok, but tend to be a bit pushy, and it’s very difficult to walk around...More

I went to Sousa Beach in the Dominican Republic July 18-23, 2018. The weather was very hot so you had to stay in the water. It was just right for me, some said the water was cold. The beach is very sandy with plenty of...More

A fun tourist site. As long as you can get around the sellers and shakers. Not necessarily for the faint of heart some days and make sure you leave the beach by 5pm before the local "wildlife" comes out. Enjoy the beach, enjoy a new...More

I like this beach to hang out with friends and relax. Many restaurants have excellent choices at very good prices. I specially like the beach trees that provide excellent shade.

It takes about 40 to 50 min about to get from terminal to Sosua beach. There is two or three ways to enter the beach. One is through the city of Sosua and another is from the main road walk down a stairway to get there and... More

Sure, it would take about an hour with normal traffic. Playa Sosua is a small beach with a lot of small beach shack type shops, restaurants, bars - and generally a fair number of people. It is nice white sand, but it is not... More
