  • I loved the beach while I bathed not me, it's the best I've seen here in Uruguay. The sand was very good and the beach was clean

  • I was delighted with Cabo Polonio, beaches, incredible, extensive, ideal for walking, few people, bring plenty of sunscreen and wear umbrella because the sun beats strong! But it is a unique place
