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. By using our Punta del Este sightseeing planner, you can arrange your visit to Playa Mansa and other attractions in Punta del Este.
Playa Mansa reviews
It is the best place in Uruguay without a doubt a top area of South America perfect for all types of people and do all types of activities more »
This very nice beach is a favorite for beach-goers as well as for beach fishing. Since it's the Mansa (river) side of the PdE peninsula, it tends to have smaller waves. more »
Linda playa y lindas vistas, pero se pasa de olor a pez podrido
É uma praia muito boa pra pegar sol, mas pra nadar eu não consegui. A água do mar é muito gelada! Rs.
