Uvero Alto Beach is set on the Dominican Republic's eastern tip. Though already well liked, this area of the island is becoming more and more popular every year. One day you'll arrive at the beach to find it very crowded, and the next it is a little calmer.

Located in the Eastern side of the Dominican Republic, Uvero Alto Beach is on the East coast of Hispaniola. You should consider stopping by whether or not you're staying nearby. Not looking forward to staking out a spot at a busy beach? All the more reason you should find a beach that isn't crowded into a major metropolitan area; relatively untouched parts of the coast like Uvero Alto Beach might not be typical "beach scenes", but are nice and private.

How to Access The Beach
