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 might think about stopping by even if you aren't staying particularly close by. Even active vacationers with jam-packed itineraries will discover advantages to finding a beach that isn't surrounded by thousands of hotel rooms; beaches less-traveled like Uvero Alto Beach are perfect when you need a break from the typical tourist scene.
