Punta del Este Sights

Playa El Chiringo

Fodor's Review

This beach, just east of Punta Ballena, can be a bit rough, with gritty sand and deep water. Chiringo catches full sun at midmorning, but shadows descend as the afternoon progresses, and the sun sets behind Punta Ballena. The wind and waves make swimming risky here. Amenities: lifeguards. Best for: solitude; sunrise.
