One of the Marino Ballena National Park beaches. A protected beach with small, local fishing boats in the backdrop. Calm waters here are usually good for swimming.
One of the nicest little private beaches according to our guest explorers!
Lovely rustic beach just a short drive from Pura Vida Ecolodge and ins nearby Playa Arco, Playa Ventanas & Playa Tortuga, should you want some variety ;)
Der wohl schönste Strand der Küste. Ruhiges Meer, keine Strömungen, in einer unglaublichen Naturkulisse. Manchmal kann man Delfine oder Wale sehen. Tipp: Bei Ebbe besuchen (bei Flut gibt es kaum Sandstrand)
Point of Interest
“Free beach, and where the river mouth meets the ocean. Every changing tides, so not great for swimming but beautiful at low tide for a walk. Close to ojochal. Great place to buy fish”
“Home to the famous “Whale’s Tail,” a large, kilometer-long sandbar that can be accessed on foot at low tide, Marino Ballena National Park in Uvita is an ocean-lovers paradise. From October through March, humpback whales and their kin can be spotted close to the coast. Dolphins swim in abundance in these calm waters as well. Expect to pay about $10 per person to enter the beach.”

“Playa Ventanas is the closest beach to Buenos Aires that tourists visit. Paid parking is enforced here but it's inexpensive (price per car was ₡2000 in early 2021).”
“Uvita Beach: This is the closest beach at 2.3 km or a 7-minute drive. You can also walk to the beach for an immersive neighborhood experience, about 37 minutes.
