Selenza in Manantiales, one of the chicest areas of Punta Del Este, stretches nicely in front of the best beaches between La Barra and Jose Ignacio.
Manantiales keeps an informal beach style, but with first class accommodation, making it one of the unique destinations of the Punta Del Este area. Its beaches are chosen by the jet set in high season especially the famous Bikini Beach on the west of Manantiales.
Manantiales began as a small fishing village and holiday destination of nearby residents. When the bridge of La Barra was built early in 1965 the once distant beaches began to be discovered.
In summer, Manantiales is a town that never sleeps, with sports and beach activities during the day, fashion shows and beach bars with music at sunset attended by a VIP crowd as well. The quiet layout in front of the beach invites visitors to relax and dine in sophisticated restaurants and attend night parties.
The deep rough sea in Manantiales offers plenty of swimming spots and it is very attractive for surfing and kite surfing waves. Surfers are also frequent visitors in the colder months.
International celebrities choose quiet neighborhoods such as Punta Piedras and Manantiales where luxury and serenity is combined.
During the off season the resort town gets some of its original fishermen back fishing by the shore and having occasional fishing club competitions. It’s a good opportunity to appreciate the landscape in all its glory, walking on the fine white sand and enjoying the distant views of Punta Del Este.
At the end of Manantiales and before Ruta 104 on Highway 10 an example of an upscale excellent development is completing its final stages and is getting ready for launching the new homes. Selenza in Manantiales mega real estate development landed in Punta Del Este with a unique real estate project for Uruguay and South America.
