Nice and interesting place to visit. Arts is on the beach and you have only to integrate with. Find a sunny day to enjoy!

a must do when in Punta del Este. A short walk from where the cruise ship tender docks. We were lucky and a school group was there so very cute for pictures.

The hand is kind of unique, but nothing too special. There are so many tourists there trying to take photos it takes away from it a bit. We still took photos but there was never a time we could get one without people in it.

There arent many places where you can get a pic with a hand sticking from the san in the middle of the beach - so why not?? Take it but then move on to see other areas of Punta del Este.

Ok, it's unusual having fingers coming out of the beach, similar to one near Washington DC, but if you're in Punta Del Este you gotta see and probably get photos of it with or without you in it. You will be hard pressed to have...More
