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.
