Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Un lugar natural magnifico que lamentablemente luce poco y mal mantenido.
En los años 60/70 fue una boite con mucho exito, aprovechando la caverna rocosa, se hicieron mostradores y una pista bailable con algunas mesas alrededor y una pequeña piscina con agua de mar.
Se ingresaba por la parte este del lomo de Punta Ballena (la opuesta a la Casa Pueblo de Paez Vilaro) y a traves de la playa y un caminito de rocas.
La entrada desde la ruta Interbalnearia es a la derecha luego que se comienza el descenso del lomo de la Punta Ballena.

Un lugar escondido pero accesible, poco promocionado pero es la naturaleza y la fuerza del mar en su máxima expresión. Quedamos maravillados de la energía de las rocas, el mar, el color del agua. Naturaleza virgen. Hay un pasaje de madera para acceder y baños químicos con una funcionaria en la entrada.
Lugar ideal para meditar
Volvería, me sorprendió.

Es un ambiente natural que otrora tuvo mas vida. Creo que habría que generar un espacio administrado por la Comuna donde tenga una propuesta cultural.

Año a Año voy, y la playa se pone cada vez mas bonita. Primero hay menos personas. Caminar por las grutas es como trasladarte a otro lugar, si bien coincido que la gruta en si le falta limpieza y tal vez iluminación. Pero el secreto mejor guardado es usar las escaleras que están pegadas a la garita de la entrada. sobre el estacionamiento, subir las escaleras que usaban los parapentes y ala deltas y recorrer las grutas y la ballena. Este Trekking es el mejor de todo Punta del Este. Las vistas son formidables por no decir las mejores y el en el Atardecer no tiene precio. Imprescindible llevar maquina fotográfica.

A região fica bem pertinho da CasaPueblo mas, apesar de bonita, está muito mal cuidada, cheia de lixo... A gruta principal parece literalmente um ponto de uso e tráfico de drogas. Me senti muito mal lá dentro. Não recomendo mesmo!

Es una playa relativamente concurrida las dos primeras semanas de enero; en general, es descubierta por las personas que llegan a visitar la ruta panorámica o Casapueblo, pero no suele estar en los itinerarios. Quienes deseen playas en un sentido, digamos, más programa de verano, han de saber que disponen de kilómetros de costa parav todos los gustos. Las Grutas es otra cosa.

Cualquier geólogo encontrará atractivo este paisaje milonita, y un profano sensible apreciará su antigüedad y áspera belleza. Quienes amen la Historia, escucharán relatos de tesoros escondidos, cementerios indios y de un yuyero viejo que hizo de la gruta más amplia su casa, quien supo llamarse el Dios Verde de Punta Ballena. En esta misma gruta están los vestigios setentosos de una disco, diversiones de otros tiempos.

El agua es profunda, fría, impetuosa, de traidores cantiles. Azul, muy azul.

Si bien son grutas naturales y tiene escaleras para llegar, la verdad que el lugar esta bastante descuidado y encima estaba lleno de adolescentes un poco raros la verdad. Nosotros solo pasamos pero no nos dio para quedarnos, no es lindo ambiente. Si la playa afuera de las grutas estaba tranquila

Me encanto el lugar;tanto por su playa como por los alrededores.El,paseo por las grutas vale la pena hacerlo.Es una lastima que no exista un lugar en donde se pueda comer o tomar algo.Todo muy rustico.-
