Create an itinerary including The Fingers of Punta del Este
Many people interpret The Fingers of Punta del Este as either a hand of a zombie god come to take his vengeance on a sinful Earth, or the grasping fingers of a buried giant. In fact, neither assumption is correct. Created by Chilean artist Mario Irrazabal in 1982, the beach sculpture has since become an iconic attraction in Punta del Este. Take an artistic photo of the sculpture and imagine all the mythical creatures it might represent. Plan my Punta del Este trip by asking Inspirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

  • Not sure why this is an attraction but everyone goes and takes pictures of the fingers coming out of the sand. Sorry but nothing spectacular. Nice beach in front of the hand - though rough. Nice...

  • Interesting monument. Nice beach spot. A place to go. Yet, prices are a bit excessive...
