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.

  • Beautiful as its name, sand and rocks, the combination that I like. Quiet in spring. If you are summer in Piriápolis, is a good choice to go with family and kids.

  • If it is really a beach as its "BEAUTIFUL" name implies a bit far from the city but here the distances or feel more for friends who make thousands of kilometres to enjoy these beauties

  • Better, do not visit it. You may not like it. Not too pretty, or quiet, or extensive. Also, not be extensive and spectacular views. And for worse, he has no movement or paradores. Also you can see large groups of people or concentrations of tourists. For this reason. Continue long. Leave it at that.
