Colonia's Beaches - Beach Colonia del Sacramento - Uruguay

Although Colonia is best known for its architecture and history, it has some five kilometers (3.1 mi) of beaches as well. Most of them are just a short walk or bus ride from the center of town. In the summer, you will find people of all ages enjoying the (imported) white sand, the gentle breeze from the river, and the water, which is relatively clean, although a bit muddy due to the river sediments. The closest beaches are Playa Honda next to the boat terminal, and the beaches all along the west coast, such as Playa el Alamo and Playa el Balneario.
