  • I think it represents the heart of punta del Este with modern Marina, Boardwalk, night to cool off with drinks and to taste the local specialties. Always full of tourists who enjoy views of the harbour full of luxurious boats and the sea.

  • If you go during the month of August, you will have the opportunity to see the sea on port lions. No need to go to the lighthouse or Cabo Polonio.
