  • I have traveled only, in family, in couple. Beach beautiful has what all seek: peace, arenas clean and seated, waters crystal clear and much space for the privacy. Always patrolled by lifeguard, with hostels in season high, vestuarios-cambiadores and incredible views of all the coast to Piriapolis. 100% recommend!

  • It is not the first time that I am going to piriapolis, but if it is the first time that I'm going to do Beach, and I must say that it is a of the most beautiful I've seen. The sand is white and soft and water, salty, but very enjoyable. So is for children to play, or to swim calmly, this beach is ideal. The atmosphere is also very nice, friendly people, are groups of people playing Volleyball or soccer, but it is also ideal for bedtime to leisurely sunbathing or reading a book. The rambla that accompanies the beach is very beautiful to take long walks in the morning or evening, and the view of the cerro San Antonio is not to miss. The landscape of this place is wonderful, making all over the world to spend an unforgettable holiday.
