I can see why this area is the place for the rich and famous South Americans to hang out! It is a great beach with all sorts of water activities and rentals. It is quite expensive by any standards.

Excellent to go with the family, avoid first fortnight of January, too crowded. March is the best month.

Very relaxing, although if you can drive, I recommend visiting Jose Ignacio and Rocha for more peaceful, natural beaches. Piriapolis is nice too if you rather visit a busy spot with cheaper restaurants.

The people who named these beaches did a good job, because playa mansa (which means calm beach) is definitely a lot nicer than playa brava (which means rough beach) because there is less wind from the ocean. If you're planning to spend a day at...More
