Home Sosua



Sosua is one of the best Dominican destinations where sun, fun and good life are all found within a small but very vibrant community. Initially a farming community of Jewish settlers ( see our page on history of Sosua ), the town now has a reputation for being an unspoiled little piece of paradise. Sosua has several nice beach resorts and private rentals to choose from, also several nice beaches.

In the bay facing the beach area there`s the Sosua Bay Resort (now named Bellamar) and Victorian House, with some of the most dramatic views of the beach and ocean from its beautiful swimming pool, restaurants and suites; A diving facility, fishing boat and snorkeling boat are available, also stores, gift shops, a casino, a spa, health clinic and gym.  On the beach way there`s a row of local artwork studios where one can buy good art at low prices, and enjoy a colorful promenade every time we go to the beach.

Coming up the beach way there`s Playero Supermarket ( called the little Playero because there`s a far larger one across the main highway ) where drinks and groceries can be purchased on the way to the beach, including some useful items such as power adapter plugs, sun protection creme, sandals, and other beach related items.

As we mention in the bars and restaurants page there`s several restaurants near it, including Morua Mai, Happy Bar, PJ and La Roca.

The Pedro Clisante street is the main strip where most of the well known bars and restaurants are placed, including Cubano Cafe, Elefante Rosso, Schnitzel Paradise, Clasico`s and Club X.

El Batey has 2 main streets that are the main one running Sosua`s center from start to end, and those are the Pedro Clisante street and the Alejo Martinez.

Each year on February 27th, the Dominican Republic celebrates its Independence. Sosua`s schools get ready and stage a long parade displaying the discipline and creativeness of its students in a colorful splash of local folklore.

One of the activities that tourists enjoy most is snorkel trips in the bay and other nearby areas where depth and water clarity is good for visibility. Sosua beach is well known as the top location for diving and snorkeling in the Dominican Republic.



Sosua is well known for its private villa rentals, attracting a lot of visitors each year that travel to the Dominican Republic in search of self catering vacation rentals in some of the private communities built around Sosua. One of the most respected Sosua villa rental agencies is Golden Treasures, featuring the largest selection of luxury villas for sale and rent not only in Sosua, but in the entire North coast:  Sosua Villas.


Sosua might not be as modern as other larger cities in the Dominican Republic, and this somehow makes it a more pristine choice for many. It is important to have a handy list of service providers in order to cope with travelers and expats residents`s needs. This directory list of contacts include the most important numbers to local vendors of the area. It is the same menu found on the website, here to make it easier to navigate from a mobile device. This list is regularly updated to reflect changes in the services.
