They arrive by land, air and yacht to the the "Monaco of South America". The two coastlines of the Uruguayan peninsula provide a calm placid side, and windy side with the well known surf spots (called "brava"). Popular beaches include: "La playa de los Dedos" (The finger beach"), which has a giant hand emerging from the sand, Bikini Beach, famous as a gathering place for trendy "beautiful people", and Paloma located about 90 miles up the peninsula has the best waves in the country, and is a mecca for die hard surfers. The endless beaches, beautiful seaside mansions, tree-lined streets, chic boutiques, stylish people makes this Uruguay's most popular destination during the summer months. Other attractions include the surreal resort-museum Casa-Pueblo, created by Uruguayan artist Paez-Vilaró , the Candelaria Church, several interesting museums, a zoo, botanical garden, and Isla de los Lobos, the largest seal colony in the southern hemisphere. Accommodations include luxury spas and unique boutique properties.
