Sosua Beach is the main attraction of Sosua thanks to the U-shaped shore and calm waters that make watersports like snorkeling easy and fun.  For those who want to venture off the sand, there are two important museums, a zip-line tour, a surf school, a casino, and much more. With so much to do and see here, a vacation in Sosua is never dull – unless you want it to be. 


Playa Sousa

You'll discover a large number of beaches to visit in and around the area. You can click on the name of each beach to get additional information about that particular stretch of sand.

If you want to snorkel, a beach offering that option is Playa Sousa. A great family beach, Sosua is clean with golden sands, clear waters, and a number of shops and restaurants in walking distance. You can see silver fish swimming around your feet, and you can rent chairs and umbrellas.

A second alternative to consider is Alicia Beach. Surrounded by the rocky cliff that once covered the golden sand Alicia may be starting to be well known, but it is still a quiet retreat. The clear waters are great for snorkeling.

Grand Laguna Beach: The beach itself features a slight slope, with tan colored sand, light foliage, and rocky edges. The water, which is turquoise in hue, is just rough enough that watersports can be a thing of excitement.

These are just a few of the options that are available. Use this link to read our page about beaches for Sosua.
