Beach Nature / Park
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.

  • stunning beach and excellent surfing lesson! what a magical place and stunning scenery! a must visit if you go to Costa Rica! thanks for a great experience!  more »
  • The jungle view is nice but the beach is not one of my favorite. Honestly, beaches of Costa Rica are not the best: lot of rocks, the sand is not amazing and the water is quite dark.  more »
  • The saving grace of this beach is the beautiful jungle backdrop. You must pay to enter. path to beach is uneven and rocky.  more »
