Daydreaming of Summer in Uruguay

Secluded Beach in the Evening Sun in Punta del Este, Uruguay
Once in a while, especially in winter, I long for these beautiful and hot days and weeks at the beaches of the Atlantic Ocean. It's almost ten days ago since the days began to lengthen again and before long spring will take over. Since Buenos Aires lacks decent and clean beaches, everyone is heading either to Mar del Plata or Punta del Este in summer. These are the closest holiday destinations from Buenos Aires. Punta del Este is virtually the Saint-Tropez of South America but unlike there you will find a lot of secluded beaches here. Uruguay is so enviably rich in great and sandy beaches.

gorgeous! the best I can describe it is as a mixture of Hawaii and East Coast of US (the dunes & the fence). Classic.

Beautiful shot...I love the water. And what an enviably empty beach too! I bet it's a little busier in the summer?

Very pretty. Doesn't look like winter to me, though. ;-) There's no snow like we have in Canada.

Beautiful colours in sunset!

No chance of being able to telecommute from there?
