How far is the villa to the Beach? How accessible is it?

The villa is located along the Pacific coast with sweeping ocean and sunset views. There are several uncrowded and serene beaches for you to enjoy, each having something different to offer.

The group of beaches that compose the Ballena National Marine Park, beginning in the village of Uvita, are all within a 15 to 25 minute drive of each other: Uvita, Ballena, Arco and Piñuela. During the week, these four pristine beaches have very few visitors.

UVITA- Walk at low tide out to the iconic sandbar shaped like a whale's tail. The reef that protects this iconic sandbar from dangerous currents and strong waves makes a perfect place to swim. The southern end of the beach is excellent for amateur surfers.

ARCO & BALLENA- About a 10 min drive. These two secluded, private beaches are side by side and the last one is only accessible at low tide. Both offer breathtaking coastal landscape where you can walk miles without seeing a soul!

PIÑUELA- Local fishermen anchor their boats in this small cove of moderate surf. This pretty pebble beach is great for swimming especially on the south side.

VENTANAS- Surrounded by lovely scenery, this beach gets its name from the 'windows' formed by huge rocky caves and tunnels right at the water's edge. Best to visit at low tide, there is much to explore.

HERMOSA- This is the closest beach to the Villa, only 7 minutes away. Park your car and catch a gorgeous sunset on this light grey sand beach while watching the local surfers and boogie boarders

DOMINICAL- Located about a 15-20 min Drive from the Villa. With waves for the more experienced surfers, this lively little village has picturesque beachfront bars and restaurants with colorful stalls of things to buy, and a beautiful yoga center.
