La Pedrera

Uruguay may not be one of the world’s hottest beach destinations, but those who do venture to this stretch of Atlantic Coastline are rewarded by rugged natural scenery and uncrowded sand. Ancient rock formations, lapping waves, and unhindered views of the stars at nighttime give this area a truly magical feel. Visit during the carnival festival in summer, and you’ll see the small beach resort come alive with colors, music, costumes, and partying that extends until sunrise.
