Fodor's Expert Review Playa de los Ingleses
Punta del Este Beach
While this beach has fine sand, the wind and waves are strong here. Venture into the water at your own risk. You're still close to the center of Punta, meaning this beach sees many non-swimming visitors. Restaurants lining this so-called Englishmen's Beach were the spots for afternoon tea in a bygone era. Amenities: none. Best for: walking.
