Looking for Things to do in Uruguay? Check THE best beaches!

Are you searching for a fun-filled summer vacation? Then Uruguay’s sun-toasted coastline is calling your name. Lodged between Argentina and Brazil, this little recluse is a piece of heaven for the quiet travelers who wish to avoid the crowds. Plus, it’s perfect for those that are craving baked sandy beaches and tumbling tides of salty seawater. Wondering where to go when you land there? Don’t fret! We’ve got a list of the most gorgeous beaches you will find in Uruguay. Let’s take a look: 

Cabo Polonio 

 This is an area of land that has some of the most mesmerizing beaches. It is your ultimate escape if you wish to take some time off from the world and its people and desire to spend time in solitude and great tranquility. It doesn’t have any roads or even electricity and has a population of just about 80. The entire experience at Cabo Polonio begins with the journey where you first get a rowing boat to take you to the beach. But if you aren’t up for a watery ride then you can choose to board a truck near the entrance. You may also opt for a half an hour long walk that takes you to the seashore. (Not advisable during the hot summer days due to the barren landscape) Once arrived, you can either ride a horse along the beach, hike over the rolling dunes for as long you want or simply sit on the warm, soft sands and enjoy crashing of the waves at the beach. 

La Pedrera

This has emerged as Uruguay’s most chic holiday towns with a stunning beach hut on a serene stretch of coast. It consists of two amazing sandy beaches that have been separated by a rocky headland. Once you land here, you are expected to set your eyes on beautiful, wave-lapped beaches, one of which has a black, rusted shipwreck, called the ‘Cathay VIIi’ on its western side. Lie down on the soft and slippery warm sand or take a dip in the clear, blue water. Either way, you will be transferred to a whole new world where there is nothing but peace and quiet. Or you can even go for exciting surfing sports and have an exhilarating experience. 


If you are a true nature lover, you will simply fall in love with the rustic beaches in the town of Rocha. It is one of the best options for a peaceful getaway in times when you wish for nothing but peace of mind and heart. Because Rocha is void of real nightlife, you will get to lie down on the sandy beach under the gorgeous starry skies, see some of the most spectacular sunsets and hear the soothing crashing of the waves against one another.
