Create an itinerary including Playa Mansa
Idyllic white sand and calm waters make Playa Mansa a perfect choice for a relaxing beach day. Relatively small crowds add to this beach's appeal, leaving you to enjoy the warm water with a long swim, or soak up the view with a walk along the boardwalk. If you're looking for more adventure, rent water sports equipment for kitesurfing, windsurfing, sailing, and canoeing. A number of restaurants and cafes serving local specialties allow you refuel without getting too far away from the water. The only downside to this spot is the jellyfish, which can pose a problem during certain times. By using our Punta del Este sightseeing planner, you can arrange your visit to Playa Mansa and other attractions in Punta del Este.

  • This very nice beach is a favorite for beach-goers as well as for beach fishing. Since it's the Mansa (river) side of the PdE peninsula, it tends to have smaller waves.

  • Purely a matter of opinion, while this is a very nice beach with a long stretch of soft sand, I much prefer the ones on the other side of the peninsula. You get the same amount of sun but the water...
