Beach Nature / Park
A chance to swim and take full advantage of the sun and sand attracts visitors to scenic Playa Hermosa. Situated between two mountains, this beach provides a long stretch of grey sand and bright blue sea. The surf is calm, making for ideal swimming and scuba diving conditions. Rarely crowded, this spot is a quieter alternative to its busy neighboring counterparts. Kayaks, windsurfing gear, and jet skis are all available for rent nearby. Pack a picnic, sunscreen, and a beach towel. Plan to see Playa Hermosa and other attractions that appeal to you using our Piriapolis family vacation planner.

  • Playa Hermosa, as almost all the Resorts East of Uruguay have a beautiful beaches that do not envy him any, are white sand, spectacular blue waters dunes and much foam, also cold, salty and really beautiful. Many people do not know Uruguay and they do not know of its beaches, its friendly and supportive people, your meal with the best meat and excellent wines. Hermosa Beach is a very good place to go and spend it more than well.

Where to stay in Piriapolis

No one can say for sure what Francisco Pira would have made of the modern development in Piriapolis--but he wanted a beach resort, and he's sure got one. Hotels old and new cling to the beach, offering a variety of facilities including private swimming pools, outdoor dining areas, casinos, and spas. For something a bit quieter, explore the resort-style accommodations in the less built-up areas of the beach. Alternatively, head a bit back from the coast for simpler, modest options.
