Fodor's Expert Review Playa Uvero Alto
This beach is actually part of the 35-mile (56-km) stretch of glorious coastline known as Punta Cana. The road here was unbearably bad, little more than a widened cow path, so it was the last region to be developed. The new paved road is a nice ride, albeit still a long one, some 45 minutes from the airport. Much of the beach, which fronts some fine resorts, has nearly white sand, while in other locations it changes to more of a taupe color, with wave action more frequent, like at the beaches fronted by Zoetry Aqua Resort and Sivory Punta Cana. The natural beauty of this beach is that many areas are still virgin territory for long distances. Amenities: food and drink; toilets; water sports. Best for: solitude; sunset; surfing; swimming; walking; windsurfing.
