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.

  • Warning: you have to pay just to get onto the beach. Predictably visitors pay 400% more than locals. Muddy/dusty roads and hotel /parking development. Pretty poor deal.
  • Beautiful beach, part of Marino Ballena PN. Worth a visit to see the famous whale's tail.
