I wouldn't go to Punta del este just to see the beach, but while you're there, by all means. The water is not bad, even in spring (October) and it's calm. If you want waves, go to the other beach ten minutes away.

Had great fun while walking through the sidewalk of Playa Mansa. If you have the opportunity of watching the sunset, don’t miss it. The views from the decks is awesome and some restaurants and bars with a great view to the beach (Playa Mansa)

Take an afternoon stroll around Playa Mansa with the beautiful sunsets, places to sit and enjoy the view and the many restaurants and cafes along the way. It's popular and the restaurants are crowded but worth the visit

the Playa Mansa, unlike the nearby Playa Brava it is usually quite calm and uncrowded. If you want the crowds you can set your towel out near the Paradas (or small beach side restaurants with beach amenities) but otherwise this is a very long sandy...More

Great infrastructure, specially if you are a guest of Conrad Hotel. There is a kiosk selling Corn, which is the only healthy food available in the beach.

I can see why this area is the place for the rich and famous South Americans to hang out! It is a great beach with all sorts of water activities and rentals. It is quite expensive by any standards.

This place is very relaxing and the waters are warm and calm, the person who named this beach was right. However, in February the beach is almost full of tourists. Punta del Este is a good place for families and young people because of the...More

Playa Mansa is on the western side of the peninsula at Punta del Este. The cruise ships anchor out and the tender will bring you in to the Marina. Once there it's a beautiful walk through the Marina to Playa Mansa Plenty... More
