#1 of 136 in Outdoors in Uruguay
Idyllic white sand and calm waters make Playa Mansa a perfect choice for a relaxing beach day. Relatively small crowds add to this beach's appeal, leaving you to enjoy the warm water with a long swim, or soak up the view with a walk along the boardwalk. If you're looking for more adventure, rent water sports equipment for kitesurfing, windsurfing, sailing, and canoeing. A number of restaurants and cafes serving local specialties allow you refuel without getting too far away from the water. The only downside to this spot is the jellyfish, which can pose a problem during certain times.

  • The Playa Mansa Punta Beach even though the waters of the Río de la Plata, is a beautiful place, very pleasant to stay stretched out on the sand with water to your front totally tame as its name says. The water is not totally sweet, is a little brackish water and cold, but it's worth a dip. When I went in October the beach clubs were all closed and the beach was super empty (a beauty ... lol) but I believe that in the summer should be another climate, just hype.

  • The beaches are spacious, calm and transparent sea. They are clean. In November there is no House open, I recommend to bring umbrella.
