Sosua Beach itself is one of the most popular beaches on the island and is often over-crowded with tourists.  What visitors will quickly learn, however, is that the town features several other equally as beautiful and calm options.  The area is protected by reef which promotes calm waters, and aside from swimming, watersports are a popular pastime. 

The Area's Beaches

You will find several beaches to enjoy in and around the area. To read a detailed article concerning a single beach simply click on the names of the ones you'd like to know more about.

Playa Sousa

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.

A second option to consider is Encuentro Beach. The thin strip of sand at Encentro Beach is smoothed by the barrage of waves, which come almost to the wall of trees backing the beach during high tide. With that said, if you come during low-tide be sure to set-up your stuff close to the trees or the water may wash them away without you knowing.

Kite Beach: Kite Beach is located along the north coast of the Dominican Republic. The beach is so named because of it's mid-grade waves and constant wind, which are favorable kite boarding conditions.

The table just below shows more details regarding the beaches located in and around the area.
