As years went by, some visionaries started to build their summer homes, seafood restaurants and even some resorts and rest areas around the lagoon and the beaches of rough waters. They were away from the hustle and bustle of Punta del Este and the talk of town for those who did not dare to go such a long way.

Thus, it became a top place to visit among the beaches of Punta del Este. Local and foreign celebrities have given it a glamorous look similar to Hollywood’s.
