During the heat of the day (during the week at least) it's deserted and there is absolutely no shade. But the place comes to life around sunset and most of the beach bars/restaurants begin to open around 5pm. At both ends of the beach there are very clean toilet blocks (white buildings, 2000G) and there are a heap of volleyball... More

good for paraguay, since there are no ocean beaches. nice and clean with life guards. we were there in winter so not many people, we could imagine how this place comes to life in the summer months. very clean and tidy and well maintained.

Ideal for families. Good room for running, biking, beach wandering, and just hanging out. No public bathrooms in sight or at least not obviously so.

It was nice to see the sea when we arrived and a beach! Ok so its not an ocean or a sea but the effect was the same. The beach was clean and you were not harassed by people selling things too much. The water was clean but very shallow, a great place to sit and chill but not for... More

The beach is small and I think at weekends during the summer it is standing room only. Good restaurants and even better toilets

The beach is at the Parana river.On de the other side you can see the argentinian city of Posadas. You're allowed to swim a couple inside the river, but not outside the marked... More
