A chance to swim and take full advantage of the sun and sand attracts visitors to scenic Playa Hermosa. Situated between two mountains, this beach provides a long stretch of grey sand and bright blue sea. The surf is calm, making for ideal swimming and scuba diving conditions. Rarely crowded, this spot is a quieter alternative to its busy neighboring counterparts. Kayaks, windsurfing gear, and jet skis are all available for rent nearby. Pack a picnic, sunscreen, and a beach towel. Playa Hermosa is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our world travel planner, Piriapolis Edition.

Very enjoyable in March

To get there, you have to leave the car in a parking lot and move in trucks suitable for the dunes, a different and entertaining experience, the beach is suitable for children and there are also small houses next to the beach that are rented. I did not like the beach full of seaweed and something dirty.
