Cool to see

The hand in the sand is a cool attraction. There are 2 abstract meanings of the sculpture. I like the one with the meaning that the hand is emerging representing a new life.

Just a few fingers made of concrete in front of La Brava beach. I thought they were bigger or nicer. Nothing special.

This was a fun and unique photo spot! It is right on the ocean and fun place to take silly pictures and enjoy the sounds of the ocean!

The sculpture of the five fingers in the sand is a nice idea and ideal for a picture. The beach itself is also very nice.

Nice and interesting picture point, one of the main post cards of Punta Del Este. Unfortunately there's too many people around...

the sculpture is nothing spectacular but it's fun to go take pictures on the beach. I went in winter. I can't imagine trying to get a good picture in the summer when it's packed

Well, this attraction is a must go from a tourist perspective because if you don't take a photo here, your friends back home will ask "didn't you visit the hand?" so go, but to me Punta has many other beautiful things to see and visit that i wouldn't put this one above any others i did.
