This city is and was a beach resort in Uruguay. It is a beautiful and modern city with a nice small port. It is a tender port for cruise ships but has a lot of nice yachts. And this is a nice, safe place to stroll. Enjoy it.

Such a special spot. All the local fishermen come in and distribute their Seafood to the vendors. Watch them slice and filet their fish throwing the remnants into the sea for the sea lions to eat. Something you absolutely do not see everyday. You can get a cocktail and sit and watch for hours- truly
MAGNIFICENT !!!?

The sea lions one more tourist.
The Punta del Este port has simple access. Good lighting. Small and medium size boats. Amplitude of schedules in high season.
Excellent views of the island.
Wonderful options for sunrise and /or sunset photos.
Well organized and clean.

The port of Punta del Este offers a really aesthetic boardwalk in which there are some lovely restaurants with local food. You can also see 'los lobos' (the sealions) which local shop owners feed fish to. It is quite a sight!

Walking along Rambla you can go to the Port, take beautiful pictures from there, eat excellent sea food and then go on walking eastwards to see the water of Rio de la Plata mixing with water of Atlantic Ocean !

The port/harbor has several nice restaurants to grab a bite. More interesting though is to see the sea lions around the fishing boats. The fisherman toss in fish scraps as they clean and fillet their catch. Real working fisherman with their fishing boats and real wild sea lions in a setting of large sail boats and yachts. Quite an interesting contrast and photo opportunity. Fresh seafood (raw) is also available from numerous stalls.

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 . .; .

Our family traveled to Punta del Este in November of 2012, and we will never forget it. For us, it was the perfect time to be there, because it is off-season then. We have heard that during high season, it is full of people and activity, and we preferred the peacefulness of the time of year when we were there. We were able to stroll and drive around the area, without dealing with traffic jams or noise. It was absolutely beautiful! Also, staff had time and energy to talk with us and direct us to various interesting locations. If you're not looking for the "party beach scene" and are simply looking for beauty and tranquility, I would say to go to Punta del Este when we did.
