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.

Beautiful beach. Great place to start your whale watching adventure.
Great views. Warm and tolerable water to wade or surf in. Watch out for some people that shot out the ones who aren't diligent. The are thefts that occur, but if you are aware of your belongings and the people around, you shouldn't have issues
