  • The marina/port in PdE doesn't seem to see a lot of actual boat traffic, but it's a very pleasant place to for a walk and/or go to one of the many restaurants in the immediate area.  more »
  • When you walk along this waterfront promenade, you could just as well be taking a stroll in southern France. Do not miss the moonrise in this quaint spot of Punta del Este!  more »
