To look from the rambla or many of the beachside restaurants after dark it was until now a delight to see the island light up after dark. This year there are no lights and there is a rumour that vandals came onto the island late and cut many of the wires. To be on the island at night is forbidden and there used to be a guardian. The wires have evidently not been repaired.

htis is abig mistake onthe part of th eintendencia since the lit island at night was fetaur eof views around th eentire neormous bay and retsarnt canno longe roffer this wonderful freedelight

Isla Goritti: An island where you can get away from the buildings and people, but still stat very close to it all. From the far side of the island (from the puerto) it feels as if you could be anywhere in the world. But its only a 5 min boat ride from el puerto. You have 2 - 1.75 hours to explore, and it isn't really possible to see the whole island. Head to the beach and explore some of the forest, because a good portion of the coastline is rocky and nothing special. Also: collect some shells like I did!

It is across the port on the Mansa side of Punta del Este. You can take a round trip ferry ride to the island for about $12. The ferries come and go every 1/2 hour or so. It's fun to explore the island. On one side you have a nice little beach facing Punta del Este and on the other side a beautiful deep beach.
