Uvita Beach, Uvita

#2 of 7 in Parks in Uvita
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 into our Uvita sightseeing planner to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Uvita.

  • The tides are to keep in mind if you want on the fin. The tide comes suddenly quickly and sometimes quite surprising. We have seen people in the distance to the belly in the water as the water came in from both sides. Not to be recommended. On the edge of the beach, we saw some macaws. The view is beautiful.
