Los Dedos Playa Brava, Punta del Este
(3.3/5 based on 5,000+ reviews on the web)
Many people interpret Los Dedos Playa Brava as either a hand of a zombie god come to take his vengeance on a sinful Earth, or the grasping fingers of a buried giant. In fact, neither assumption is correct. Created by Chilean artist Mario Irrazabal in 1982, the beach sculpture has since become an iconic attraction in Punta del Este. Take an artistic photo of the sculpture and imagine all the mythical creatures it might represent. Put Los Dedos Playa Brava into our Punta del Este vacation trip planner and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • In spite of the monument, he's exactly what you see in the picture ... and be a península...vc just passing Punta on the monument several times ... it is close to the casinos.

  • Famous fingers are such that one sees in the pictures. The truth I became disillusioned a bit since they are only a few steps from the street for cars.
