Nice Beach with a bit of local flavor. Close to Food, Bars, and just a bit of many others. Vendors are plenty, but not aggressive. As much sun or shade as needed depending on your tastes.

The beach is beautiful, swaying palms look and sound soothing, the little shops shine with colors and smiling faces. The soft sand of Sosua’s beaches and vibrant merchants is exactly what I pictured when I dreamt up what a Dominican beach would be like. Women...More
