Catch a boat across to Isla Gorriti, a secluded island off the shores of Punta del Este. Head to the far side of the island to relax on the quieter of the two pristine beaches, or stay on the near side to enjoy a range of water sports. The island's pine forest offers peaceful, shaded walking routes that traverse the pedestrian-only island. Bring food and enjoy a picnic on one of the many benches dotted around the island. Put Isla Gorriti at the forefront of your travel plans using our Maldonado driving holiday planner .
Isla Gorriti Reviews
La isla se encuentra a escasos minutos de Punta del Este, las embarcaciones salen del puerto regularmente (el boleto de ida y vuelta cuesta unos 10 Dólares). Además de vestigios de la época colonial (... more »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 »
