  • Totally beautiful, I've been all my life. On one side you see Punta del Este with a spectacular view of the sea and on the other you can see the cutest sunset!

  • Punta Ballena Punta Ballena is one of the most particular and beautiful places on the Uruguayan coast. The incomparable view of the bay of Maldonado and Portezuelo that can be seen from the Panoramic Route above the mountains, make this one of the few places in the world where enjoying a sunset is so pleasant. Its cliffs give a Mediterranean look to the place and house the mythical "Casa Pueblo". On the west side there is a small natural port, where nautical sports are developed, and you will find the beaches Portezuelo and Solanas, very visited for its orientation to the west, its calm waters and its large expanses of fine sand. On the east side there are grottoes, rocks and thick sandy beaches, overlooking Punta del Este and Gorriti Island.  Looking at Punta Ballena from afar it is possible to understand the why of its name; the saw on which it is located has a shape similar to the body of a numbed cetacean.
