    You can go by boat, boat or watercraft, the water is wonderful, but rather cold. Summer is filled with boats and people, is most beautiful in March or December that there are fewer people for my taste. Highly recommended.

    The island is isolated and virtually deserted, no structure to feed, but it is paradise and few people visit the site

    Gorriti island is a beautiful place to enjoy a day at the beach, you can go to their corners and enjoy beautiful views of Punta del Este and the ocean horizon. There are ancient cannons that were part of a strategic defensive position of the Bay in colonial times against English, Portuguese and French invasions. Accessible to taking a boat that leaves from the port of Punta del Este, the tkt is purchased at the same port in offices that there are on the floor more low where also will find bathrooms, shops selling fish. No prior reservation is needed there are cash games in summer in winter slightly lower frequencies. In short an island with history, nature and tranquility, ideal for travel in family, as a couple, with friends or alone.

Where to stay in Punta del Este

A major vacation destination, Punta del Este boasts a wide range of accommodation options, though most establishments remain relatively expensive even during the off-season. Summer marks the peak of tourism (December to March), and during that time even mid-range hotels charge top rates. Visitors with deeper pockets can choose from a number of three- and four-star hotels within walking distance of good beaches. If you're traveling on a tight budget, consider one of the hostels scattered throughout Punta del Este's residential neighborhoods.
