There is a beach although the water is very muddy and a fairly run down walkway. It could be so much better than it is but worth a walk.

Ferrando Beach is about 3 kilometers from downtown Colonia del Sacramento. The neighborhood around this beach is not the best...therefore a foreign tourist should not visit it after sundown. There are neither hotels and/or restaurants bordering the beach.

A friend and I went there in mid-march (which is off season), so there was no one else there. That made it pretty much a private beach! It was very relaxing, although the water was a little cold. It's only a 150 Uruguayan pesos ride...More

As a Brazilian, I know beaches. Playa Ferrando really looks like a sea beach, although it is on Rio de La Plata. The only down, is that the beach is kind of noisy. There are a lot of locals, riding their motorbicycles back and forth....More

If you go to Colonia, try to go to Ferrando Beach. It´s a beach situated among the woods. Really nice to have a nice view of the river, walk with your wife or girlfriend among the beach, and have some drink in situ. The beach...More

A very beautiful spot just outside the city of Colonia. Walk (or drive) to the end of the main drag (Flores). You will see two gas stations. Turn right after the far one and walk 1 - 2 kms... right at the round about, another...More

I stayed on full day at Ferrando, definitely a recommended spot if you like the beach. Fresh river, wide beach, comfy. Aprox 20 minute bike ride. Best: Quiet, at least in November, better suited for couples. Not so good: If you can take your own...More

Very quiet beach away from the hustle of this busy little village. Not sure about walking to or from it in the dark, but a must to visit during the day.
