Punta Uvita, a whale tail shaped point is the gateway to Marino Ballena, one of only two marine parks in CR. The point and some offshore islands help filter swells and create good shelter for some softer, nicely-shaped beachbreaks, working right through the tides. Something for everyone as it can get perfect and the odd hollow day for advanced riders.
Take the second access road in the park and pay the entrance fee, which helps keep the crowd factor lower than nearby spots. All facilities in the park and a great place to hang out, making it a favourite of the local surf school.
