Whale Tail An Oddity of Nature

The Whale Tail is the result of converging currents. These currents deposit sand on top of the rock formations to create the unique, tail-shaped pattern. Best of all it is located in the spot where every year humpback whales stop to nurse on their long migration journey.

The Whale Tail is located in the small town of Uvita, between Dominical and Ojochal, in an area known as Costa Ballena and it is part of Parque Nacional Marino Ballena.

If you are planning a visit, make sure to check out a tides map, so you can experience this iconic oddity of nature.
