At the center of La Paloma sits a lighthouse warning captains of sandbars and a rocky coast. Very similar geographically to the Outer Banks in North Carolina, La Paloma is a summer tourist retreat for Argentineans, Brazilians, Chileans, Europeans, Uruguayans themselves, and even a few brave Americans.
Surf at La Aguada beach, hire a bike and ride to La Pedrera village. Sunbathe at Anaconda beach. Watch the spectacular sunset.
Another option would be to go horseback riding and birdwatching in the Sierras de Rocha, about 30 minutes by car, close to Ruta 109. I’d recommend checking at Caballos de Luz as they have really calm horses trained with natural horsemanship and lots of species of birds around their place.
For vegetarians there’s an unmissable place called Caballos de Luz that is less than an hour away from La Paloma where you can find delicious vegetarian homemade food cooked with fresh ingredients from the garden.
