Cabo Polonio Things to See and Do

follow us

It is perfectly possible to while away the days in Cabo Polonio happily moving from beach to hammock to restaurant to bed. Although relaxation is the most popular past time, it doesn’t take much more effort to experience the town’s activities too. A visit to the Faro (lighthouse) is a must, and the sea lions nearby can be spotted easily, while touring to the Ombu trees also brings you closer to nature. Surfing, sandboarding and horseback riding are further year-round highlights.
