Cambacua Island, Concepcion del Uruguay

4.7
#3 of 14 in Things to do in Concepcion del Uruguay
A river island which looks and feels like a paradise beach, Cambacua Island sits just across from the city in the Uruguay River. Stretching along 23 km (14 mi), the island originated as a mere sandbar and over time evolved into a mature vegetated reservoir. The wide, gently sloping beach has clean white sand. The rest of the island remains preserved with lush green foliage and numerous native species. Wooden huts with straw roofs set-up on the beach offer all types of services such as food, drinks, umbrellas, chairs, and water sports.

  • Very beautiful to go to spend the day or evening with your family or friends only can be reached by boat or catamaran, departing from the port in the summer. You have a place to eat, which only operates in summer (approx. from December 8 until the end of February) baths on the island are not showering since they are a style of chemical but clean bathrooms and with luck there paper entry charge it from a quad that covers the island and is not expensive the entry with the catamaran guess which includes the entrance to the island but I'm not sure is little dangerous for kids since by many metres away from the shore it is still highly recommended shallow in the summer!
