Ideal tropical beach...
May 2021
Very long beach. Clean and lots of coral reefs for snorkeling. The sandy beach is not very big and one can walk quite a way out into the Sea.

Day trip

Was told of this place by trip coordinators ar the hotel. Awezome and calm beachfront. Some vendors but nobody is pushy here. Not much parking but beautiful scenery in the area.

Beautiful Water, but Very Crowded
Mar 2021
We made the mistake of going on the weekend and the place was very crowded. We had not been around that many people in a long time, so it felt odd and it was hard to relax. It was also hard to get to and we had to hire one of the three wheeled taxis to get us there. The water was beautiful.

Beautiful Beach!

This might just be the most beautiful beach I have ever seen. Not too crowded and very clean. Enjoyed every minute I was there.

Not calm waters
Dec 2020 • Couples
I naively expected snorkeling opportunities and a calm clear warm Caribbean waters experience on the east coast of CR. I held out hope that Punta UVA would deliver. It’s pretty, there’s plenty of shade, but even swimming is not recommended.

Great snorkel spot
Nov 2020 • Solo
Thus beach is pretty long so you'll be able to find a spot to yourself. I recommend the entrance at the north side seemed to have very few people. The water was calm and great to swim all over. The snorkel spot is alongnthe bar beach that juts out to the peninsula, there are corals and rocks along that section. Its very safe to snorkel to the end of the peninsula, calm waters and easy to get back to shore.

Lovely beach
Sep 2020
This is definitely one of the best beaches I've been to in my short time here so far. Clean, not too busy, clear water. What more can you want?

Also, there are loads of great fruit stalls on the cycle/drive down from Puerto Viejo. Really recommend stopping off at one - variety of fruit is excellent.

Best beach in all of CR
Sep 2020 • Solo
The pics say it all. Beautiful beach, clean and clear water. Calm and warm water. Beach faces north so you can see sunrise and sunset alike, a treat on the Caribe. My 3rd time here. This is a place I could live, town and all.
