  • Beautiful beaches at José Ignacio. Near punta del este. Quiet location with amazing views. Playa brava and mansa. Two very beautiful beaches. One more for surfing and diving, fishing and relaxing. Both wide beach with fine clear sand. Brava beach is the lighthouse by completing the unforgettable landscape.
