Los Dedos Playa Brava, Punta del Este

(3.3/5 based on 5,500+ 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.

  • I was the second half of January and it was super packed, myself with the sculpture never could get me a photo since all the time there are a lot of people. Of night the hand is illuminated with lights blue very beautiful.

  • Perhaps the most popular in Punta, this monument is very popular and is stuck in the middle of the sand. Yields good pictures accompanied by a beautiful visual.

  • Difficult to be able to take a postcard at this classic stop, because there are always many people, it should be going early in the morning, at night with lights also looks very cute.
