Uvita Beach, Uvita

(340+ reviews on the web)
Beach
An unspoiled beach within the Marino Ballena National Park, Uvita Beach features a gently curving shoreline with clear blue waters. Dense plant life full of palm trees and mangroves line the beachfront, while further inland you'll find several waterfalls. Watch for migrating humpback whales on the ocean's surface or Hawksbill sea turtles coming ashore to nest. An abundance of marine life fills the waters, making this a good spot for snorkelling and diving. Take a kayak tour to check out the mangroves and surrounding estuaries. Put Uvita Beach and other Uvita attractions into our Uvita tour planner, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • Probably one of the most beautiful beaches I have ever seen during my stay in Costa Rica. Still wild Beach without too many tourists. For this reason pay attention to your business because even if nothing happened to me (I left all my stuff to my hotel and didn't come with my beach towel) I met some travellers who had been stealing backpack and belongings. Normally the beach access is paying ($6) because it is part of the marine park but there are chances that you come across any store in this area here.
