It starts from draining ditches between Gudenieki and Basi manor. It flows through Piemare (Littorina Sea bed) and Ventava Plains. The most of the course, except for the section between Tērande and Sise, has been regulated, the river bed was straightened during the first Republic of Latvia and in Soviet time. Out of 67 km, 31 km are suitable for canoeing - from the right bank of the confluence Vanka to the sea. The easiest way to start canoeing on Užava is to start at Stradži farm near the bridge over V1269 local road.
In summer the water in the river is clear, and it has rich underwater flora and fauna. The course to Užava village is good. The river bottom is sanded, there is rough gravel and stones in some places. The river bottom is covered by loam and grey sand closer to the sea. The shores are sandy or clayey, with signs of severe erosion, 1 - 2m high and overgrown with deciduous trees. There are mostly willow shrubs on the shores in the drained sections.
