Balneario La Paloma reviews
I spent my honeymoon here and I love it. The beach is beautifuil, the water is clear, I even saw dolphins once! This trip is ideal for a young couple but also for a family. I will come back for sure. more »
Lots of peace, clean air, beautiful sea!!
A small natural paradise on the Uruguayan coast, with magical sunsets... La Paloma is a maritime municipality on the southeastern coast of Uruguay, located east of Montevideo. The white, thin lighthouse on Cape Santa Maria is located by the Atlantic Ocean, near an area of traditional fishermen's huts. Not far away are the Chica and Grande bays, which have sandy beaches with calm waters. The Cultural Center La Paloma hosts cultural events. To the west is Los Botes beach, with an important surfing activity, and the Rocha lagoon, a reserve with migratory birds.
