A crisp breeze brings the taste of salt to your lips as you stand on the golden sand of Punta Uva looking out over the aquamarine waters of the Caribbean.

Just a few hundred feet back from the beach, behind the golden hobo fruit trees, coconut palms and coastal almonds, you'll find the Punta Uva Dive Center where you can rent kayaks, sign up for dives and join snorkeling tours to explore the coastline and its off-shore reefs.

A trail starting from the beach's south-end will take you up through the coastal forest on to Punta Uva, an exposed sandstone lip offering views of the entire southern Caribbean Sea.
