Playa Alicia is another attractive beach of Sosua
Sosua – Like it’s not enough to have some of the most attractive beaches on the North Coast of the Dominican Republic, the resort town Sosúa has been rewarded with a new gift of nature. This is a new beach, formed by sea to the astonishment of residents and tourists in the same coastal picturesque district known as “El Batey”, founded in 1938 by Jewish immigrants.
According to the review by www.accessdr.com portal Alicia Beach or Waterfront beach, as it is now known, began to form in 2003 with sand carried by the sea current of the Atlantic Ocean, in a gradual process that took several years, it didn’t draw much attention because the place had a high cliff waters exceeded five meters deep.
In the 50s and 60s this place was kind of a waste landfill where a slaughterhouse deposits attracted sharks prowling in the area.
An entrepreneur Juan Perdomo said: “I remember going to that place in 1970 and noticed that the depth of these waters was some 5 meters. My parents had a waterfront home nearby and always went there to watch the sharks. “
Perdomo was one of the project sponsors to build a beautiful beachfront park that now also serves as a focus for Playa Alicia, as a new beach of Sosua and the last recorded in the inventory of marine natural attractions on the North Coast.
This beach currently, along with the park, is one of the most attractive places in Sosúa and almost obligatory point of interest to all who visit this resort community.
