Punta del Este spreads along 45 miles / 70 kilometres of Atlantic beaches with fine white sands and rolling dunes. Due to the unique geography there are calm waters on one side of the isthmus - the castle side - with ideal surf conditions on the other. During our South Hemisphere summer - December to March - there are restaurants and bars dotted along the beaches as well as activities for children. However, if you prefer, there are also quieter beaches that can be enjoyed without a soul in sight.
Punta is famous for its seabirds and sailing, its whales, golfing, horse riding, polo and its vineyards, scuba diving and surfing; so if you are a naturalist or a natural adventurer Punta is a destination for all seasons. At El Castillo you can relax and dip in and out of the local activities and attractions or we can help you plan your ideal vacation; even arranging a detailed itinerary.
