San Jose Beach, Encarnacion

4.4
#1 of 12 in Outdoors in Paraguay
Soak up the sun overlooking the Paraná River at San Jose Beach, a charming golden sand beach with an upbeat atmosphere that comes alive when the sun sets. From the comfort of a lounge chair, gaze over the clear water towards a unique urban skyline.

A wide esplanade runs along the sand, great for walking, cycling, and rollerblading. Play volleyball on one of the several courts while music plays from the beach bars. At night people come here to party at the bars and restaurants. Plan to visit San Jose Beach during your Encarnacion vacation using our convenient Encarnacion vacation planner.

    The beach is very beautiful and has a very interesting for Posadas. Has a great infrastructure, many food options, blocks, several places to sit. Has bathrooms that, although paid, are very clean. Is a safe place, where nobody bothers you. The Boardwalk is very well lit at night.
