Punta del Este is more Known but the best waves of uruguay are in Rocha state.
Only in La Paloma you have like 6 beach breaks, 5 point breaks and a few of secret spots, the surfing in uruguay is still in development.
The atmosphere is cool, not very crowded, excellent beach brake, a very fast but hndled wave .
Lot of times, get classic,and tubular, the sharks are not common
Is a great spot to visit, specially in summertime.
