Uvita Beach, Uvita

#1 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.

  • Almost a Year ago, I still dream of the deserted Beaches. Never have I seen more Beautiful things. It's almost as if the World had reinvented itself there. Howler Monkeys wake you up in the morning at 06.00, then the Hummingbirds come to refuel nectar. Every now and then an Iguana spans from the Tree, a Rainbow Okan Looks past or the bright-red Macaws fly over your Head. Capuchin Monkeys play in the Trees and Raccoons steal on the Beach. Pure Nature! A Dwelling near The beach is not recommended. There you are really eaten up by Sand Mosquitoes. Better at least 2 km away. Otherwise, it is and will remain my daily Waking Dream!

  • 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
  • Beautiful beach. One of my favourites in Costa Rica because it's not too busy. Felt very comfortable here.
