Fodor's Review

This hamlet with a vibrant art community and some of the most jaw-dropping properties for miles is the choice beach for Punta's most well heeled and stylish. José Ignacio sits on a miniature peninsula and has beaches with both calm and rough waters. Because it's just enough outside the downtown Punta orbit, visiting is a day trip for most. Amenities: food and drink; lifeguards; toilets. Best for: partiers; sunrise; sunset; surfing; swimming; walking; windsurfing.
