#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.

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 not per se the beach, but it was not to publish it. It is the quarry ferrando, a kind of a lagoon with crystal-clear waters in which diving is performed. It is a half-hidden place, near the beach, back of the free zone. It is worth going to see it and take a photo. In summer it is ideal to be able to get.

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.
