La Paloma

For its beauty and popularity La Paloma is one of the most emblematic seaside resorts in the department of Rocha. Nestled in the Atlantic Ocean, its main attraction is its magnificent beaches. The reason is that beaches in La Paloma cater to all tastes, from the calm waters of the small bay, to the great swells of La Balconada, La Aguada or La Pedrera beaches. Inlets, rocky tips, large extensions of white and fine sand, high dunes, plain or deep waters and an endless natural diversity provide a place of preference for everyone in La Paloma. Fishmongers are concentrated in Los Botes beach, where the fishermen are entrusted to the Lucho´s Christ, a sculpture made by fisherman Lucho Maurente. More information

Cabo Polonio

Cabo Polonio

The Cabo Polonio National Park is an area of great natural beauty which still retains typical features of the Uruguayan Atlantic coast from prior to the transformation process that began in the mid-twentieth century due to the expansion of the traditional urban tourism model. This coastal marine area possesses a great diversity of natural environments that include sandy beaches, rocky points, dunes, native coastal forest, small wetlands, ocean areas and islands. Many of these ecosystems are priorities for the National System of Protected Areas, given their restricted distribution in Uruguay (rare ecosystems). The most prominent feature –for its uniqueness- is the Cabo Polonio dune system, which is the most extensive remainder of a sandy strip that once stretched along our coast. It is one of the few shifting dune areas in the region, with areas in which the height exceeds 20 meters.
