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 Reviews
Solamente pasamos unas horas en Punta del Este ya que llegamos en crucero. Igualmente pudimos disfrutar de un rato de tranquilidad.

We stayed at Stop 1 of the meek beach, with fine sand, no waves, shallow, clear and warm water. This spa is located in the Río de la Plata, but with great marine influences, so it is bathed by waters of the Atlantic Ocean. It is ideal to go with the family. We were surprised, I liked it very much.

Very nice beach and quiet. The water is clear. Sometimes there are living waters but beyond that it is ideal to relax and see beautiful sunsets.
The busiest beach in Punta del Este. It is wide and generally quiet. It's less windy than the Brava. The water in general is cold and transparent.
