Playa Mansa, Punta del Este

(4.3/5 based on 2,200+ reviews on the web)
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. Playa Mansa is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our custom trip planner, Punta del Este Edition.

  • It was a very good experience, is as if you were right you bathing in the sea, but more quiet, as salting obviously, Cross River/Ocean, but very good beach and beautiful sands, for a great stroll walking!

  • It Playa Mansa is ideal for families with children small, such your name, the water and the environment in general are very quiet. Has a cute rambla and from here will come the best sunsets. Not to be missed!
