Piriapolis and Punta del Este

Piriapolis is the country’s earliest beach resort. Walk along the waterfront promenade and take the chairlift to Cerro San Antonio, a hill with a small whitewashed chapel and lookout point. Visit the Castillo de Piria, house of the founder, and discover the local flora and fauna at the nature reserve. From the oldest resort to the most glamorous, Punta del Este boasts many beaches, elegant seaside homes, and celebrity sightings.
