Uruguay Beaches

Uruguay Beaches are world renowned and the Gems of South America!

This comes as a surprise to those who had assumed that only Brazil could boast of having world famous beaches decorating their shoreline. Cave exploration, whale watching adventures, wonderful restaurants and specatacular ocean scenery are all waiting for guests who travel to the coastal regions to explore Uruguay.

Indeed the beaches that are located alongside the Rio de la Plata in Uruguay extend for nearly 500 km. The Uruguay Beaches that kiss the waters of the Atlantic Ocean provide beach loving visitors with another 220 km of shoreline to enjoy and explore.

Uruguay Beaches are one of the major tourist attractions in this small South American Country. With an abundance of sandy shores from which to choose the most difficult task is trying to fit as many of them into your travel itinerary as possible.

You will have fewer beachgoers thronging the shores at La Rambla but at Pocitos Beach there are always large numbers of people enjoying the brisk ocean breezes, wave tossed waters, and sandy shores.

Punta del Este Uruguay

Punta del Este is a peninsula area where you have two separate coastlines known as the Brava and the Mansa. One group of beaches front the shores of the Rio de la Plata River and the other beaches are located on the opposite side of the peninsula and their shorelines are set against the waters of the Atlantic Ocean.

These Punta del Este beaches include Beach of the Englishman, Brava Beach, Chiringo Beach, El Amir Beach, Chilean Beach, Manantiales Beach, Montoya, Solanas and Las Grutas Beach.

The two coasts are called Brava and Mansa. One is the end of the Rio de la Plata River where the other is the beginning of the Atlantic Ocean.

  • Brava Beach is one of my favourite Uruguay beaches. You will find La Mano here. It offers thick sand and a dangerous sea which surfers flock to.
  • Beach of the Englishmen is a small beach, next to the port of Punta del Este. Offering soft, thin sand and rocks, it is consider dangerous to swim here and is not as windy as some others.
  • Chilean Beach where you have a wonderful view of Punta del Este, Gorriti Island. It is known for whale watching. At the lagoon you can windsurf and enjoy other water sports.
  • Chiringo Beach promises thick sand beaches and deep water. It is not possible to see the sunset from this beach.
  • El Emir Beach is a dangerous beach with deep water and rough waves. Not recommended to swimmers but is visited all year by hard core surfers.

  • Manantiales Beach is a sandy beach with deep waters and rough surf. This is where jet setters and the elite hang out.
  • Mansa Beach is a big bay of thick sand with quiet, calm water. There is a wooden bridge over this beach where people go to admire the breathtaking view of the bay and Gorriti Island. It is an ideal beach for fishing enthusiasts.
  • Montoya Beach is a well known beach. Favoured by championship surfers for its thick sand and Big Waves.
