About Sosúa

Sosúa is a beach haven on the north coast of the Dominican Republic, its main attraction being Playa Sosúa which has drawn in legions of adoring expats and tourists since the 80s.

Sosúa saw an influx of Jews fleeing Nazi Germany during the Second World War adding to its diversity today. They set up a dairy cooperative, Productos Sosuas, hence its recognition as the cheese and milk capital of the Dominican Republic.

The nearest airport is La Union in Puerto Plata, about 16km away. Getting around is cheap and you can jump in and out of guaguas making it ideal for travellers on a budget.

What to do in Sosúa

Sosúa is big on seafood, and you’ll spot fishermen on their boats gathering fresh lobster, crab and fish. Be sure to try the catch of the day at a beach shack, usually served with rice and beans.

Our favourite street snacks include pica pollo, a tasty fried chicken, popular before partying into the evening.

Check out Club 59 (also referred to as El Classico) which plays Latin dance music and is often host to guest DJs. If you’re looking for even more excitement, barrio El Batey on the east of Playa Sosúa is the best for a lively night out.

It’s all about aquatic activities in Sosúa – when you’re not lapping up the picturesque views of the ocean, this is the place to try scuba diving as the coral reef and tropical fish are stunning. Novice divers should head to the Three Rocks, the shallowest dive area best for beginners.

Surfers can get their fix too; the waves are best ridden between December and March, which is also the best time for whale watching.

Birdwatching is a great way to explore the island’s beautiful landscape. The Dominican Republic is home to around 32 species, so pack your binoculars!
