You don't expect to find five gigantic fingers reaching up out of the sand when you visit the beach. This is an awesome sculpture.

Playa Brava is a long stretch of beach fronting the ocean and is home to the acclaimed sculpture colloquially known as the Monument of the Fingers which features giant fingers rising from the sand. Great opportunity for photos. The beach is OK but rife with vendors.

I did enjoy visiting the fingers. It was a fun place for photos on a beautiful beach. Can't say I understand all the fuss.

I just visited Punta and only for 1 day, but it's a really agreeable city, with good restaurant and a good weather too

Loved this quirky hand with the fingertips reaching out of the sand, like some long buried giant awakening. However, the crowds and vendors (even in off season) took away some private enjoyment and "meditation." But go and have silly fun!
