Beach Soccer

Beach soccer, or futbol, is extremely popular in Uruguay...especially on Pocitos beach. Wide, white-sand beaches that are relatively flat have several permanent goal posts setup up to facilitate the action.

While these fields, and Pocitos beach in general have been empty the last couple of months, recent daytime sunshine has brought out the footballers again.

Clear sunny skies give way to windy evenings and cold nights as the sun sets. In another couple of months, sunny weekends will bring the brave back to Pocitos beach. In four months, you won't even recognize it as the same place :)
