“One of the best views of Uruguay”

Mirador Punta Ballena
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 2 July 2017

The view of the ocean and Río de la Plata is great. Besides the mirador, there are places nearby where you can reach the rocks and go snorkeling in the summer and spend a spectacular afternoon. Also you could visit Casa Pueblo or go to Arboretum Lusich.

I have been going to Punta del Este since I was a little child and this place NEVER gets old. Although sometimes it gets too crowded for my taste, the view it beautiful, specially when the sun is setting or when the sun is rising. It is a place everyone should go when staying in Punta Del Este!

Stop here to admire the ocean, the cliffs, south punta del este with its long beaches and high-rise buildings, and north LaBarra up to Jose Ignacio. Take a drink and toast the sunset. Very romantic. Windy.

The "Mirador" offers a great view of the bay area. A great place for pictures on a beautiful or stormy day, you can buy some souvenirs also and there is a great restaurant nearby.

Impressive views of a sunset. For some reason better than the sunrise on playa Brava. Make sure you take with a light sweater, even in summer in can get windy and chilly.
