Playa Mansa, Punta del Este

4.4
#1 of 137 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.

  • Punta del Este that due to its geographical arrangement is protected naturally by the waves of the ocean Sea basin characterizing with generally calm. Suitable for families with children or to all those who love the quiet sea. Beach amply served by bars and restaurants.

  • Between the Playa brava and mansa get the mansa. Calm sea without waves and with a super clean water. The view is beautiful. The sunset is a must and worth too much to stay to see him.

  • It is a very nice, quiet and with little surf beach. There are motorbikes of water, paddle board, chairs and umbrellas rentals. We went in March and there were few people. Every now and then there's house where they sell food.

  • I love Punta del Este, is a beautiful landscape, the calm waters of Playa mansa Beach let you swim in a pool! At first somewhat cold, then warm and relaxing, ask to see the best 🌆 when the sun behind the gorroti Island sets... sometimes there are small fish and jellyfish or living waters as they say there, and that I very much do not like, but is the only thing , now the water is clean and the sand is a color dorada.fotos at 7 am
