    Only a few blocks south from the Ciudad Vieja (Old Town) is La Rambla, a long coastal promenade divided into various parts, including Rambla Francia, Rambla Gran Bretana and Rambla Argentina.

    This is a good place for a stroll, especially the section from Rambla Francia to the beach at Rambla Gran Bretana. It's a great feeling being able to walk so close to the ocean in the heart of a capital city. You get a good idea of Montevideo's size on this walk as the city stretches as far as the eye can see to the east.

    Beach time on La Rambla

    Reminiscent of the Malecon in Habana - at least the pictures I have seen, la Rambla can be a highlight of any visit to Montevideo. The avenue stretches for miles along the sea and bordered by tall apartment buildings, parks, promenades and beaches. You can see a large part of the City at play here on a sunny Sunday afternoon. The seashore is a feature that really makes Montevideo something special. It is easy to see myself sitting in that fold out chair with a cold tanque in hand.

    The "Rambla"

    The Rambla is the street that boards Montevideo's coastline, it is also one of the most important avenues of the cities and it has heavy traffic during the daytime.
    The Rambla is definitely where the vest views of Montevideo are, its a combination of natural beauty with modern buildings. You should go specially to the Pocitos Rambla where in summer a lot of people gather around to have a drink, chat, ran or just walk.
