Since its installation in 1982, "La Mano" by Chilean artist Mario Irarrázabal has become an instantly recognizable icon of Punta (and arguably of the entire country). It's located on La Brava Beach, and others along its 20 miles of shoreline include La Barra (probably the most famous); Playa Bikini (where buff, bronzed bods abound), Montoya (a favourite for surfers), and Manantiales (hip vibe), Playa Mansa (on the calmer, river side of the peninsula); Playa El Emir (also super for surfing), and Playa Chihuahua (especially for those who like to bronze in the buff).
