Lighthouse of Cabo Polonio Reviews

A vista do farol é incrível!

It allows a perfect view of the colony of seals and sea lions (it was possible to see the seals swimming super fast, it was beautiful!), as well as the dunes, beaches and houses of the village. Take a blouse, wind A LOT!!
A perfect place to connect with nature and enjoy the view of some sea lions, while sitting on some stones. Really beautiful place, loved it there. Beautiful sunsets as well and the stars in Cabo Polonio are just so amazing! I wish I could have stayed there longer just to enjoy the beautiful scenery. Cabo Polonio definitely was one of the most beautiful if not the most beautiful place I’ve been to in Uruguay. If you are thinking of going there, do it! It is definitely worth it! I know it is hard to forget about your busy life and to shut off your phone and relax (did not have service there anyway) but try and do it and you will not regret it!
Awesome place, you can have a panoranic view from all cabo polonio, the beaches, the rocks, worth visiting.
