Good choice with NE or ENE winds and S, SE or SW swell, but with a N or NW wind you should check out Corrales 5 km to the E.
The pros are: Locals range from friendly to indifferent; less crowded than Punta del Este; good and powerful wave, it gets hollow sometimes; it’s on your way to other eastern spots and you can check it out from your car.
The cons: Needs a strong swell to work.
Just another beach break, don't waste time to check, there is notinhg special on it. Mostly work on storm days.
