Beautiful area to go and enjoy a nice walk, jog or just to sit and enjoy. The views are amazing. Recommended

My son and daughter-in-law live there and have no reservations about walking around the neighborhood at night.

Nice beach but water is so dark I wouldn't get in. Lots of ladies always walking around so great views.

I ran over the sidewalk of the beach. It is lively, calm and super family friendly. Yo can appreciate lots of residential époques along the shoreline and you may stop around for a quick or long bite.

We love to stay near here when staying in Montevideo. This has been quite the trip but I feel this is where most of the good restraints and night life is located. Along with the great and beautiful buildings.

Good neighborhood, pleasant place, lots of restaurants and bars, followed by the sea, it is more attractive than the center of the city

On the Rambla. Lots of small shops to explore or just to walk in the neighborhood. Good location to get to anything.

Hola, disculpas or no haber contestado antes. La playa Pocitos asi como todas las playas de Montevideo son lugares publicos y por suerte gratuitos. Lamentablemente no hay un lugar seguro para dejar las pertenencias. Saludos.
