Karen Chapman falls in love with this glorious Uruguayan beach town
1. Indulge at boho-chic, laid-back beach restaurants
Parador La Huella is a favourite spot at Jose Ignacio for both locals and visitors alike, with a choice of dining areas – take a table directly on the sand, the wooden-shack style terrace or in the buzzing interior. It’s well known for its delicious seafood, and you can’t go wrong with grilled octopus, the catch of the day or an exquisite plate of delicately flavoured sashimi. La Susana Beach restaurant is a hipster hangout where you can soak up the vibe among sand dunes overlooking the ocean. Sip on a sundowner to the tune of ambient beats and sample the delicious, organic dishes, accompanied by an excellent Vik wine.
