Tours and Activities:
Ñandubaysal Campsite and Bathing ResortPablo EtcheversJorge González
This is one of the most beautiful bathing resorts in the Uruguay River. On its golden sandy beaches, all kinds of sensations invite visitors to stay.
Rumor has it that when Uruguayan plastic artist Paez Vilaró visited these shores, he was deeply impressed; to such an extent that almost immediately, he suggested that the owners of this land should build a small Casapueblo, in this case on the Argentinian side. It was a way of carrying on with art in a place where nature had made its own contribution and man resolved to play along.
Years later, amidst the various well-known diplomatic discussions, the controversial Botnia Pulp Mill was settled down in the District of Fray Bentos, on the Uruguayan side. Even though it may be spotted on the other side of the river, it has not succeeded in throwing the majesty of the Argentinian side to the shade. Nature continues to reign, in spite of everything.
Gualeguaychú Has It All
Just 18 kilometers away from the City of Gualeguaychú, Ñandubaysal campsite and bathing resort occupies a 1.5-kilometer area of white sands and clear waters, an ideal destination for thousands of visitors who come along every year.
Water and beach sports, as well as the possibility of swimming in shallow waters, prevail and make this place busy until sunset.
Ñandubaysal has been named after the great deal of tree specimens abundant in the area which, along with the weeping willows, give color and warmth to these gorgeous shores.
The Best Campsite
The campsite has experienced remarkable changes in the last few years. One of them is the closeness to a different kind of air, bonding with nature.
The owners understood that in order to reach different kinds of target tourists, it was necessary to refurbish the venue and provide the proper infrastructure to satisfy various demands.
This may be perfectly appreciated all throughout Ñandubaysal, where there are well-defined areas for families, youths and couples, who look for different sensations in the same place.
Ideal to Fall in Love
The Mediterranean construction raised by brilliant Paez Vilaró is in excellent condition, as if it had been built a few months ago.
With whitewashed walls ornamented with cane and wicker, this place preserves the magic. At sunset, it is necessary to make a table reservation to watch the peaceful river and relax.
“Ideal to fall in love”, says one of the men in charge and he is not wrong. Most young people in Gualeguaychú, beyond all the bars in town, stop here to get close to this wonderful bathing resort where they usually dance on the sand to the rhythm of the music played by some of the DJs who cheer up the afternoon.
A perfect site in a city that looks perfect.
