(4.2/5 based on 130+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • We stayed in an apartment in the resort of Praia. Excellent choice, metres from the sea, on Route 10. The beach very good option to spend the day with young children, since it is fairly repaired wind. The negative is that there are parts the song rolled in the water-abundant, is difficult to enter the sea.

  • After almost all the East Coast for years, I'm with is as the best area for vacation. Quiet but near Piriapolis, you have beach but also mountains. An enjoyable place in family.
