Playa Mansa is where the fun is! I am spending the entire Summer here, and it is an amazing and beautiful place. The Brava side is great too, but the Mansa side has the boardwalk, and the Sunsets! The view from the Seasons Tower is spectacular!

This is a beautiful beach specially in the afternoon when you can admire the sunset. As it is stated it is mostly very quiet with no waves

This is the beach you need to go if you want to watch a beautiful sunset. It is a little crowded but you can stay on the deck.

We then came back the next day and enjoyed a Sunday at the public beach in Punta. We walked from the Conrad hotel enjoying the along the walkway, the... More

Beach itself is fine, nice sand but cold water in mid feb. Chair rental guys agreed to a "reduced" amount of $20USD for two DINKY beach chairs (not the lie down kind, but the dollar store rusty looking kind that only covers half your back and your butt) and an umbrella. Odd system of having old people man the parking... More

This beach for some reason has the clearest water in Punta del Este. You can have a relaxing dip while you enjoy the fabulous view of the Gorriti Island and Yacht port. Excellent for kids and family. There are some pubs/cafe at the beachside. Enjoy!

The mansa side of the beach is pretty cool, it has a lot of families with kids but also is kind of a scene where there is a bar and music. You also have a long wooden walkway you can go take a long walk on. I'd recommend sunset there, which in January is about 8pm.

This is a calm beach with small waves for the whole family to enjoy. Parador 5 has good food, but Parador 13 has recently been renovated. Excellent water sports school on Parada 10. Jet skis next to the Conrad hotel section.
