  • To get to Cabo Polonio is necessary to use the transportation offered by the Park. That in itself is an adventure. After bumpy ride for 30 minutes in the truck that crosses the dunes, you arrive near the headlight. It is necessary to walk about 10 minutes more. The view is very beautiful. Get ready because the wind is strong all the time. If it rains or is cold, it's going to be complicated.
