The original enclave of Punta del Este, with its Old Quarter that houses the first buildings in the area and that gave rise to the city, the Peninsula is considered the center of Punta del Este. With Avenida Gorlero and Calle 20 as its commercial center, its sports and recreational port, and its emblematic lighthouse that rises to 44 meters of focal height built in 1860, the Punta del Este Peninsula is the cardinal point from where It unfolds wide residential areas where the beauty and extension of its beaches gave it its fame and made this city the most important vacation and investment destination in Latin America.
The Punta del Este peninsula offers its visitors a wide variety of cuisines and gastronomic styles. Restos, inns and restaurants, in conjunction with the daily fishing obtained by the fishing boats that moor in the port, make Estena cuisine one more attraction in this exclusive resort.
