Located on the Northeastern area of the country, more precisely in the Department of Rocha, Cabo Polonio (Polonio Cape) is a real paradise. Due to the quietness of its beaches and the subtlety of its buildings, in the last few years, it has been one of the most visited swimming resorts by those who wish to rest.
One of its particular features is that most of its housing units do not have electricity or running water. Therefore, the rhythm and tasks of its dwellers are set by sunlight, from dawn to dusk, we might say.

Cabo Polonio is a charming fishing village which can only be reached by foot, horse or special four wheeled drive. It is the largest biosphere reserve in our country with endless oceanic white sandy beaches. Several sea lions populates the small islands, making up one of the biggest reserves in the world? very occasionally we spot a migrating Franca Whale.
Another of its attractions is the Lighthouse, built in 1881? the place was declared National Park in 2009.

Its beautiful, wide and warm beaches during the day and the presence of the lighthouse, along with the local handicrafts stands, make this a perfect site to spend the day.
