Description

Parking lot right by the beach, lovely and quiet place to camp.
There are public toilets, no shower. Tourist information available occasionally.
Wi-Fi available for 15 minutes.
We met some other overlanders here too. There is some grass space for tent camping but I'm not sure how secure it would be.
(is not alowed open the tent camping because here is also a parking and locals complain about it for the police)

Passamos uma noite neste local, próximos a praia com uma linda vista. Há banheiros próximos mas estavam fechados. Pela manhã seguinte um guarda Municipal informou que ali não estavam permitindo pernoite, apenas passar o dia. Não haviam placas indicando e como iriamos partir antes do almoço não questionamos

pasamos tres noches en el estacionamiento, sitio tranquilo. los baños estaban cerrados no sabemos si por la pandemia o por no ser temporada. la policía pasa a menudo, nunca nos dijeron nada por estar estacionados allí.

Still a quiet spot outside of town, right by the beach, but with facilities still closed on 10.12.19. There's a tap on the hose by the toilets which can be used for washing and is apparently drinkable water but showers and toilets not yet open. Town is very quiet right now, restaurants etc opening on 13th Dec.

We parked on the grass to the left and in front of the closed bathrooms. Wifi only good for 15 minutes. We took the boat ride across to the park and then walked to the whale lookout. Okay cell reception. We liked the town and stayed 2 quiet nights. No beach view as it's blocked by dunes.

Very narrow space with sand, grass, some small houses around with very friendly people. Open WiFi not bad, but tourist info and bathrooms closed in off-season. You can have a walk on the beach, some locals told us for 50 pesos they can make you cross with their boat. Good place for one quiet night but for us there isn’t enough privacy

It’s a nice place for one or two nights but off season ... quiet and calm

Literally its parking in a sandy roundabout, surrounded by some small houses and dunes. We left immediately.

A cold and windy evening with thunderstorms rolling in. The bathrooms and the tourist info are closed during off-season.
Nobody really here except a few stray dogs and a local couple on their way back from the beach. We ended up staying two days and adopting one of the local dogs. Wonderful beach behind the dunes.

A few steps from the beach. Open Wi-Fi, toilets and lots of tranquillity. 10-15 min walk to the the center of the city. Right at the start of the long walk to Cabo Polonio.

we can just say the same as the others, we stayed 2 nights here, did the 20km walk trough the dunes and along the wonderful beaches, we saw lots of sealions at the cabo polonia and dolphines :-))

the village is nice, friendly and really hippie-style :-)

we first asked by the hostel lucky valizas, but there we would have to stay with our small camper on the street, they wanted 900 pesos, just for using the cold showers, baños & wifi...

Really nice. We parked in the little lane way towards the beach and had a quiet night overlooking the ocean. Toilets and showers closed. There is a boarded up building just on the beach with a beautiful deck where you can sit and look at the ocean. The town is really sweet and low key. You can also walk along the coast or cut across the dunes to Cabo Polonio here (approx 8-10km each way). Takes about 2 hours and is a very pleasant walk with deserted beaches along the way that you can enjoy all by yourself (although beware of stumbling into the random nude sunbather along the way!)

It's just possible to camp here in the off season. Next to the car park is a bar and other houses. Some locals came in the evening, but quite at night. You've got plenty of lights, good for cooking, bad for sleeping. From here you can cross the river and walk to Cabo Polonio, it's about 7 km.
