Known for its pristine beaches, expansive seaside mansions, trendy shopping and stylish locals, Punta del Este is a picturesque and luxurious destination for your next vacation.
For a mix of surfing, delicious food, outdoor art and a young crowd, visit Playa de los Dedos. For something calmer, many people love Playa Mansa or Gentle Beach. This beach attracts mainly families, and its crystal waters are calm, with virtually no wind. If you’d like to see what the beautiful people look like, and possibly take in an outdoor fashion show, Bikini Beach is where you should head.
If you’d like to interact with wildlife, visit Isla de Lobos. The area is considered a nature reserve due to the fact that it holds the largest colony of sea lions in the western hemisphere. This is also where you’ll find the tallest lighthouse in South America, built in 1858 with a height of 194-feet.
