Sosua - The Place

Sosua is located twenty kilometres east of Puerto Plato on the northern coast of The Dominican Republic. The resort has a fairly recent history as the area was settled by Jewish Refugees escaping from Nazi Germany in the late nineteen thirties. Although many left the Sosua after the war some remained and there is a synagogue and a Jewish museum in the town.

The Dominican Republic has become a popular holiday destination because of its glorious sandy beaches and wonderfully clear waters, its mountains, rivers and waterfalls, and its saltwater lakes. Sosua is an idyllic spot with several beaches of golden sand. The main beach, a sheltered cove, slopes gently into warm turquoise waters. It is perfect for children and less confident swimmers. The translucent waters are ideal for snorkelling and diving as the coral reef teems with colourful marine life. A variety of water sports will occupy the more active holidaymaker. These include wind surfing, sailing, and fishing. For those who wish to view the marine life without getting wet, there are trips to the reef in glass bottomed boats.

The standard of accommodation and service is high and the resort offers a wide range of recreational facilities both on land and at sea. The restaurants serve a variety of food that caters for all tastes and budgets. The bars and discos, as well as hotel entertainment provide a lively nightlife where the party atmosphere continues until the early hours of the morning.
