  • It is a suitable Beach to stroll and relax in the sand, because it is very clear. Its waves is very strong so it is not suitable always for the bathroom.

  • Punta Del Este is a beautiful place, with beautiful beaches. The Playa Brava really has a "bravo", but the place is beautiful, with a deck to take pictures with the "Los Dedos", sunbathe and enjoy the great movement that invades the city during the summer. Stay close to the Centre and the Harbour, with a great variety of bars and restaurants.
