  • The island is located a few minutes from Punta del Este, boats leave the port regularly (the round trip ticket costs about 10 Dollars). In addition to remnants of the colonial era (such as the canyons and the English Cemetery) it has a beautiful chain of beaches throughout its perimeter and an extensive area of forests to pass through. Highly recommended.

  • Since we were there in low season, we had the island for our own. Lucky with the sunny weather we walked almost around the whole island. Very nice and peaceful. Different from Punta de Este.  more »
  • It's unbelievable, but it still has its nature intact. It is ideal to spend the day. It has a stop but is not always open so it is advisable to take food and drink. There are good wooded places to rest when you are not in the beach area.
