Uvita Beach, Uvita

(4.1/5 based on 300+ 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.

  • Walking out on the Whale tail is an awesome experience. The location was great for swimming as well. Go for low tide for certain. 
  • Cobran 6 dólares por entrar habiendo playas igual de lindas gratis. Aparte es el primer parque de Costa Rica en el que no ví ni un animal. Lo recomendaría si no cobrarán por ingresar. 
  • Wir haben den Nachmittag am Strand verbracht und hatten da nach ca. 10 Minuten Fussmarsch am Strand einen ganzen Abschnitt für uns. War wirklich gemütlich.
