  • I think it represents the heart of punta del Este with modern Marina, Boardwalk, night to cool off with drinks and to taste the local specialties. Always full of tourists who enjoy views of the harbour full of luxurious boats and the sea.

  • We were touring the harbour is a pleasant place, where the sunset can be seen and appreciated the view of all Punta del Este... I really liked... The view of the water at dusk with the sunset is beautiful...

  • Playground of the rich and famous. This place compares to the best locations I've seen anywhere in Europe or in the world for that matter. It truly is spectacular. The buildings here remind of Miami, Florida and it's clean with so many high class eateries and beautiful evening views. It's definitely worth a visit if you ever come to Uruguay.
  • Interesting to see the boats and the sea lions , especially when the fishing boats return with the catch. Great for buying fresh fish
  • Nice port, good place to get fish in morning, birds and Seawolves are visible very often. Good place to chill.
  • lindo como siempre
