It is known as Our Lady of Candelaria and was discovered by Juan Díaz de Solís in 1516. We can see yachts, amazing sailboats and small fishing boats approaching to sell their fresh fish. The friendly sea lions always arranged for a photo are the most attractive thing in the place. Many bars and restaurants can be found in the surrounding area.

Breath taking sightseeing. If you are in Punta del Este, you must go. It's beautiful to watch the sunset there. On Tuesdays there are a lot of sea lion, because on Tuesday the shops there clean the fish , and they feed the sea lions with it, so it's a good opportunity to them and some gulls too!
