Sosua Beach is a very picturesque bay on the shores of the Atlantic Ocean, which tourists have chosen for recreation. Sosua Beach is considered one of the most beautiful in the Dominican Republic and one of the most popular tourist destinations in the Caribbean. Its length is about a kilometer.

Playa Sosua from the north is protected by coral reefs and is distinguished by the extraordinary purity of the seawater, which is especially impressive for tourists. Many people note the presence of pleasant fine sand, calm sea, and the incredible beauty of the beach. But some tourists sometimes complain about too big waves. The beach is located in the cozy town of the same name on the northern coast of the Dominican Republic, which has also gained great popularity among tourists.

This was the best beach near Puerto Plata. The sand is fine (not white) and soft, but the water is clear and postcard-perfect turquoise water (no filter required). There are lots of vendors renting sunbeds and umbrellas (2 chairs and 1 umbrella) for $9-10 USD, there are lots of vendors selling beers, massages, fruit, art, oysters, and snacks, etc on the beach or along with the beachfront shops.
