Location of Punta Gorda in Montevideo
It borders Malvín to the west, Las Canteras to the northwest, Carrasco Norte and Carrasco to the northeast and the coastline to the south. The coastal avenue along Punta Gorda takes on the names Rambla O'Higgins and Rambla República de Méjico, across which are the beaches Playa de los Ingleses and Playa Verde.
On top of the promontory is a square which is also a park, the Plaza de la Armada (formerly known as Plaza Virgilio) and it is a tourist hotspot. Another notable sight is the Molino de Perez, a historic watermill, now housing a cultural centre.
