In the distance we can see the Island of Wolves. We also find the famous sculpture of the fingers. We were a cloudy and off-season day, in summer it is very busy.
Yo pasaba a diario pare a dos cuadras ideal para surf el agua en junio estaba tibia muy linda para caminar more »I would stop every day two blocks ideal for surfing the water in June was very nice warm to walk
Very nice beach and very well located. It is close to the bus station and the main food and meeting points. I was at the beginning of the summer and it was pretty empty, which I consider a good thing. There's no tents and it's very clean. Great for hiking and for those who seek peace
The beach of Punta mornings. Open, agitated and cold sea. But a great beach. Walk to the fingers and take a picture. Near the Gorlero restaurants, after the sea bath. In the afternoon, you change the beach and go to Mansa, with its calm waters that justify the name. I await the sunset of Mansa, in Oporto or in the paradors of all the beach
