Punta del Diablo is a small town of beach huts and sand dunes. From a small fishing village on Uruguay’s Atlantic coast, it becomes a hippie surfer hotspot in the summer. Visiting during the shoulder season means you can wander through feathery grasses and along sandy paths virtually alone, but still enjoy the daily catch and cocktails in town at a few restaurants that stay open.
