This is the ocean side of the PdE peninsula, and so the waves tend to be bigger more frequently, since it is actually the open ocean (unlike the "mansa" side). It's still a largely undeveloped area.

Punta del Este might not seem like relaxing summer holiday place, but it definitely is. Playa Brava is the best beach in the city. It's huge, long, clean, you have plenty of space there. I loved it. Ad thanks to sand dunes you don't hear cars from the road, just waves. Over all, you can surf there nonstop.

If you visit Uruguay and spend time in Montevideo then take a trip to Punta del Este it will certainly make you see the difference between the two places. The latter makes you think of some of the best resorts on the Gulf of Mexico, even some of the better European resorts. The beach here is lovely, the water warmer than you might expect and it is very, very clean - a real contrast with the capital. Well worth a visit.

This long stretch of beach fronts the ocean and is home to the sculpture Monument of the Fingers which features giant fingers rising from the sand.

The beach is full of activity. Everyone was enjoying the sun while others were taking pictures of the famous hand. There are several shops and you can just take your time and enjoy the beach.
