This is a must go place. It is a hill entering in the ocean as a peninsula. View is fantastic. Do not miss Casa Pueblo, a museum created by painter Paez Vilaró.

Stop here to admire the ocean, the cliffs, south punta del este with its long beaches and high-rise buildings, and north LaBarra up to Jose Ignacio. Take a drink and toast the sunset. Very romantic. Windy.

The "Mirador" offers a great view of the bay area. A great place for pictures on a beautiful or stormy day, you can buy some souvenirs also and there is a great restaurant nearby.

Impressive views of a sunset. For some reason better than the sunrise on playa Brava. Make sure you take with a light sweater, even in summer in can get windy and chilly.

Go and see Sunset there or at Solana Beach. Each day is a miracle, starting around 7.45pm, after beach, take a drink and just dream. For couples, children or singles. Just relax, enjoy
