#2 of 8 in Outdoors in Colonia Department
When in the historic small town of Colonia de Sacramento, take a break from sightseeing and relax on Playa Ferrando. The tranquil beach situated on Rio de la Plata abuts a lake that used to be a stone quarry. Swim in the calm water, or sunbathe on the soft white sand. Take a relaxing walk along the tree-lined shore, away from the bustle of the city center. Bring snacks and drinks for a relaxing picnic on the lush, green riverside beach.

  • It is a beach of colony located 1 km from the Centre, you have to cross the Park Ferrando is very cute but also a little more ugly area. In general you will arrive with rented cars or bicycles. It is a beautiful beach with some infrastructure

  • Beautiful beach of rio; large and clean. For all, but shady place (should be carry). A friendly, peaceful and fresh river. During the week, the beach is almost deserted.

  • We went with my partner on Sunday 10/12 and the truth is that the only thing that I didn't like Cologne was the beach! It is surrounded by settlements and not only that but they very dirty do not recommend water

  • Very quiet, ideal beach for children, has arrolito if you like for recreational fishing in the family. 10 blocks from the port, has a small restaurant to cool off and the sand of the beach is the cleanest

  • At the level of the landscape and nature, it is a very nice place. Unfortunately, it is careless in relation to the maintenance of the Spa.

Where to stay in Colonia del Sacramento

In contrast to its quaint historical architecture, Colonia del Sacramento offers a range of multi-story, luxury accommodations. Most of these sit near the tip of the city's peninsula, with swimming pools and good beach access. If you want to stay in the old town itself, choose between a range of hostels, inns, and boutique hotels housed in buildings more in keeping with the city's colonial architecture. Make sure to reserve your accommodations in advance, especially if visiting on a weekend or during the busy summer season.
