going to the lighthouse is a must do experience in Cabo Polonio. It's very cheap and not impossible to go up, but a bit claustrophobic. Anyways, great view and you can see all the village and the sea lions.

Entrance is only 25 pesos, and the views are great. Remember to take off your hat or it will fall off!

The view was pretty. I've seen cooler light houses, this when you can walk up for about one US dollar. It's not that crowded around lunchtime. There is a nice view of the seals

From here you can see the whole town and coast around Cabo polonio. Its the best vintage point to have a view of the sunset as well as some of the sea wolfs that hang in the rocks bellow it. 25 pesos p/p

The Cabo Polonio lighthouse it very picturesque! Right on the point of the area, it overlooks the sea on 3 sides. Beautiful approaching, with wonderful vistas of the sky and sea and land, climbing it is a must. It is an easy climb, and very inexpensive (25 U Pesos). From the top, the vistas are incredible

From the top of the lighthouse, you can enjoy the view of the wonderful Cabo Polonio landscape with those amazing and blue beaches and the lovely sea-lions. It's a very cheap option and you can get amazing pictures from there.

I had the privilage to stay in a private house at Cabo Polonio. It was a dream, no electricity, no running water, but an incredible environment and a great beach. We had a lamb on the grill, the music and singing was provided by our selves and we had a lot of fun.

Great views from the top, gives you a totally different perspective of the area. Nearly didn't go as we had climbed up to the highest part at the far end of the beach, but glad we did. Definitely worth the 20 pesos!
