Expat centred Sosua offers one of the most beautiful beaches on the island with powdery sand and crystal clear blue water. Vendors and restaurants run parallel to the beach and are available for shopping, food, drinks, and even on the beach service! Also in town is Playa Alicia – yet another lovely beach for tourists and residents.
Sosua also offers big box grocery shopping, a modern hospital and a huge variety of restaurants.
The history of this seaside town is very unique. In the early 1940’s many Jewish settlers arrived here to escape the persecution of war. The refugees settled in the east part of Sosua known as El Batey and formed the successful Sosua Dairy co-operative (Productos Sosua), which exists to this day. There is a small Jewish museum detailing the history of the refugees.
