Beaches at Cabo Polonio, Cabo Polonio

4.7
#1 of 15 in Outdoors in Rocha Department
Explore a largely untouched area of coastal scenery at Beaches at Cabo Polonio, known for their sand dunes and hippie commune. With only 95 inhabitants, the area's hamlet remains off-grid, with no running water or electricity. Access to the beaches is possible only on foot or on an authorized dune buggy ride, which you can reserve at the area's visitor center. Nearby you'll find a resident colony of sea lions--just ask one of the visitor center staff to point them out.

    Cabo Polonio is a magic that is registered in the memory. I visited a couple of years ago and also have much love for this small town away from everything.

    No matter where one is seated, will be fine. Its vast beaches and the tranquillity of the place, you will give the chance to really relax. Be alone, with friends or girlfriend. It is not a place for people who want to be a thousand, go shopping or not wild things is banque.
