Great beach, clean sand, calm sea (when we were there) and friendly locals. Plenty of places to eat and drink just off the beach.

Sidewalks are dirty, broken and with excrements. There’s garbage on the floor all around. Car drivers have no respect for peatons, and are dangerous. You have very limited attractions, unless you like to just eat chivito.

Only the Rambla makes it out for this place, and is usually packed with bikers, runners and dog-walkers.

Excellent city beach. Surprisingly clean with its proximity to the city. Fairly close to the airport, and ideally located. Winter or summer, it is a great place to walk around and just get close to the water and relax.

My favourite place on earth for a vacation. 15 minutes from the Carrasco Airport, This is the best barrio to stay in while visiting Montevideo. It's got almost everything, and what it does not have is only minutes away.

Not among the best urban beaches. Further more the river waters were quite muddy. Generally nice to see but rather as a site not for suntanning.

El problema es muy complejo, porque esta politizado de manera insalubre. Hay problemas de gestion, si es cierto. Pero eso afectaria de igual manera a otros barrios de la ciudad, y lo cierto es que en otros barrios no se nota... More

Hola, disculpas or no haber contestado antes. La playa Pocitos asi como todas las playas de Montevideo son lugares publicos y por suerte gratuitos. Lamentablemente no hay un lugar seguro para dejar las pertenencias. Saludos.
