Uvita Beach, Uvita
(4.1/5 based on 280+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • A lovely beach with the famous Whale Tail outcrop which is only available at low water. Plenty of space , palms trees up to the beech give a lot of privacy . Perfect 
  • We went to the beach right next to the tail of the whale C was super empty Beach, hot water as the bath house and great fish to see near the rocks of the tail of the whale (progress of sand and rocks which can be discovered at low tide and is covered at high tide and its shape is really think about the tail of one whale)
