Nice Views
Feb 2020
We stopped here as part of our city tour from the cruise ship. There is a tribute to Uruguayan naval personnel lost on duty and a bronze fallen soldier memorial sculpture.

Fallen Naval heroes monument
Oct 2019
A tribute to Uruguayan naval personnel lost on duty (SAR etc. because Uruguayan has had no naval battles). A beautiful spot east of the city proper, set on a slight prominence along the coast.

Beautiful and calm
Oct 2017
The place is beautifully kept and offers a nice but short opportunity for visitors to relax and take some super photographs. The monument is quite stunning and the surrounding area was peaceful and not too busy with tourists that you could not easily get photographs on your own

Nice water view
Feb 2018 • Couples
We stopped here on a city tour shore excursion. It has a nice view of the coastline, a view of the city of Montevideo on the right, and a bronze fallen soldier memorial scuplture. There isn't really any hiking or other activities here. It is near a suburban neighborhood on the outskirts of the city

Not the most interesting place to visit!
Feb 2017 • Friends
Not the most interesting of places to visit, however, the bronze monument-sculpture is in honour of those fallen in the line of duty for the navy. The attractive sculpture represents marine animals and the hands of a man. There are good views across the bay to Montevideo. It's a little way out of the city and probably not worth the drive.

Interesting statue and great view of the city
Feb 2016
Statue of man's fight with the creatures of the sea. Off to the side a large park area with a view of the city.

Scenic view
Jul 2014 • Solo
Scenic view of the water. Tourist restaurant below. There are diplomats' homes in the area so be aware. Not a good idea to take pics of them.

I was here about an hour just to view the water and enjoy the setting sun. I think sunset and sunrise are the best times to visit. Well tended plants and flowers.

Great spot for Sunset and panoramic photo of the coast
Apr 2014 • Solo
This place is located half way between the airport and downtown and a must stop for sunset photos and/or panoramic photos of the coastline. It is a nice spot to sit on the grass and just enjoy the view. The Rambla (or waterfront road) goes around this elevated area of grass lawn and rock. The Hemingway Restaurant is right below and offers a great location for lunch, cocktails and dinner with a great view of the River Plate.
