Pueblo Barrancas, Uruguay

Welcome to a castaway town. Feel the sand between your toes, the sound of the sea in your ears and forest fragrances in your nose.

You step outside your timber cabana, or step down from your luxury tent – atop a stilted platform – and you are surrounded by unspoiled nature. A beach setting that isn’t compromised by high rise hotels, or roads, or man-made gardens.

Pueblo Barrancas is a tiny town with a difference. It doesn’t stand aloof from the surrounding countryside; it’s a natural part of its own environment, and it invites you to relax in a setting that has been created in harmony with its landscape. Climb the forested hillside and you’ll experience a beautiful view over the beach and sea, broken only by the tops of thatched roofs peeping trough the forest canopy. This is luxury tourism at its most responsible.
