In summer, Pocitos Beach is Montevideoâ€™s favorite playground for swimming, beach volleyball or simply sunbathing. The sea is safe and the beach is clean, making it a popular place with families. On the southern end lies a small plaza with various sculptures and a lookout point, which is also a good fishing site. The tree-lined Ramblas are excellent for a walk, jog or cycle ride all year round, with every 500 meters (1,640 ft) marked so you can track your progress.
