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.

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 alternative worth considering is Encuentro Beach. There is plenty of parking at this easily accessible beach.

Kite Beach: Dipping slightly into the northern coast, Kite Beach is known for its wavy waters that are aquamarine. The shore, meanwhile, is a dark tan colored sand lined with brush and palm trees.
