Relax in one of the high-end, all-inclusive resorts, which sit next to stunning expanses of white sand, in one of the country’s most charming beach villages.
Step into the paradise that is Uvero Alto, where coconut groves give way to a picturesque white-sand beach, which stretches as far as the eye can see along the Punta Cana coastline. More rustic ranches still exist here, though most travelers stay in upmarket all-inclusive hotel resorts, which promise seclusion, luxury and pampering.
Life in Uvero Alto centers on the beach. While away days under the hot, dry Dominican Republic sun on a glorious stretch of the larger 35-mile (56-kilometer) coastline and feel the tranquility of this laid-back corner of the country. Dig your toes into the soft, white sand, splash in the warm, bright turquoise waters of the sea and gaze out at boats bobbing on the horizon. In the height of the midday sun, take shelter under the palm trees which fringe the beach. The sunsets here, when the sun glows a deep orange red in a cloudless sky, are unforgettable.
Uvero Alto’s beach promises solitude, swimming and sunsets. Yet watersports and more high-energy activities can be found, too. Try your hand at windsurfing, snorkeling and horse riding.
A new paved road has replaced a bumpy track and finally opened up this otherwise hidden corner of Punta Cana. Even so, mass tourism has still not fully reached these parts and Uvero Alto retains a charming, authentically Dominican Republic feel and plenty of natural, untouched beauty.
By evening, enjoy dinner and drinks in the quiet restaurants and cocktail bars in the resorts along the shore. Discover everything from high-end restaurants to casual beach bars.
Uvero Alto is located in the Punta Cana region, about 45 minutes’ drive from the international airport. Many resorts here offer private transfers for their guests. Alternatively, use local taxis to get around. This region boasts a delightfully warm climate, with temperatures consistently between 77 F and 82 F (25 C and 28 C) all year, making Uvero Alto a tempting year-round beach vacation destination.
