One of the smaller beaches

Playa el Emir is near Brava beach and is again, another beautiful beach in which to take you shoes off and have a stroll along!

What a great surprise walking along the shoreline
Jul 2019 • Couples
The playa (beach) surrounds the sweet shrine of thanksgiving for the intercession by the Lady of Candelaria. Not only is the shrine covered in cemented on plaques of thanks many of the surrounding rocks have the same objects, some are just thanks carved into a rock itself. Behind the shrine the area is pretty rocky, it was a blustery day when we visited and the tide was out so we got to check out tide pools. There was one surfer in the water and two entering so we watched awhile. It doesn't seem conducive but the guy did catch a fairly good wave so it must be worth it. Wetsuits absolutely necessary. There is a nice beachy area that was nearly deserted. We were interested in the sea grasses that grow there, some were totally in the water. Cool place

It is a shrine

It is a shrine, take a moment and go see it. It is free and is not that far from the Los Dedos (the fingers in the sand).

Spiritual & lovely beach
Aug 2017 • Friends
Ordinary people + groups of surfers. Mate (Uruguay most popular beverage) & camaraderie. Fun, small sand area...but enought to sunbathe. If you do not want to interact with other people...thi is not the place to go. This is a place for sociable people wanting to make friends.

Just great beach with enough activity close by to keep you interested. Do visit if you're in Punta. The beach can get packed, but early mornings its pretty open!

Lovely beach, clear water, nice waves

This is a beach where "normal" people go. That means you don't have to be bikini perfect and still wear one, you can go without a tan and people won't star at you like you are from Mars. A bit crowded, but perfect for me.

Not worth a special trip, if you are on your own walking tour, it is one of the stops, not ell maintained, not wheelchair accessible, in my opinion.

Between Playa Los Inglese and Playa Brava (Dos Dedos Art)
Jan 2017 • Couples
Between Playa Los Inglese (South) and Playa Brava (North-Dos Dedos Art) you will find this likewise nice beach. Perhaps the most interesting beach for people watching dynamics. It seems to be a favorite of vendos and locals alike. See it.
