This is one of the wanderful places in Punta del Este. You must park close and walk trough the Rambla to the Punta del Este Port, and wait for the sundown. Nice clima in this time of the year. Then you can have excelent fish or pasta diner in one of the restaurants in front of the ocean.

Start walking on the rambla by the port, then continue on to the point and around the other side of the peninsula (I cut through a neighborhood because I wanted to see the homes, but I assume the rambla, or promenade, continues on, if not, cut through).

Visited in late October so weather was nice but the tourist rush had not arrived yet. Nice place to visit and right across bars and restaurants that probably have a great atmosphere in the high season.

Just a very pleasant way to enjoy a little more of Punta del Este ! ! ! The boats, the harbour, the critters scrambling for a free meal, the food to be consumed, the fish to be sold, people enjoying the sun, people enjoying the sea, people readying the boats, or ingesting local liquid favorites . .; .

Small pier with many yachts of all shapes and sizes. Lovely and peaceful especially out of season. Well worth a visit, have some lunch and going for a walk.

roam around and enjoy the marina, take a lunch or have a beer at the pier, Moby Dicks is quite nice, and the service is wonderful. Also, by the marina you can eat on the ocean side overlooking the bay. Winter is wonderful, not crowded, people walking along the shore, animal lovers with the pets romping in the surf. peaceful...

Small pier, with fishing boats and yachts in the marina, very relaxing to walk along the water with the background of modern architecture lof ow rise condos, near the center of town.
