The North Coast of the Dominican Republic has been a top tourist destination for Europeans for nearly three decades. There is a very large expatriate community in Sosua, which consists of mostly German, British, American, and Canadian expats.
Sosua Bay attracts many water sports enthusiast, including snorkelers and divers because of its sheltered, calm waters, diverse species of fish and intricate reef structures.
The premiere scuba diving facility in #Sosua is on the northern coast of the #DominicanRepublic. Owned and operated by Jurgen Rumpenhorst since 1994!

In the winter, whale watching is also a popular tourist activity in Sosua Bay.
Recently, naturally occurring beach nourishment has created a new beach just north of Sosua Bay, depositing sand where there were previously only sheer rock cliffs. The beach bears both the names Playa Alicia, and Playa Casa Marina because of the hotel in close proximity that bears the same name.
There are several other beaches, Sosua Beach, which is a crescent-shaped bay protected by
coral formations and clear waters for divers and snorkelers. Sosua's other beaches are Waterfront (also called cul de sac), Paradise beach (actually shifts on and off every several months), Playa Imbert and Playa Chiquita. Waterfront beach is only 7 years old, created after a storm around 2002. There is also sport fishing. A very large population of expatriots share their culture and mingle with locals and foreigners
