ABOUT THE ART
Color photograph of a house in Cabo Polonio.
Although I am Uruguayan, last year I had the opportunity of knowing this place magical and surreal at the same time. Its peace and solitude are immense, it is a unique site, remote, inaccessible, with a hostile climate, and at the same time full of life and nature in the wild.
The dunes and the ocean filled my heart with harmony and deep feelings.
Cabo Polonio is a caserío (hamlet) located in the eastern coast of Uruguay in the Rocha province.
Cabo Polonio has no roads leading to it and is located about 7 km from the main highway.
It is accessible by walking through the dunes or by 4x4 vehicles (old military trucks) .
The region has no electricity or running water for the few hundred houses of this town, and wind power and a few generators are used to power some of the posadas and grocery store. There is a lighthouse that gets power from the national grid. Residents obtain water from nearby water wells or collecting rain water.
This village principal attraction is the Atlantic beach, with water and sand, a natural reserve of sea lions and one of the area's few mobile sand dunes, in which the sand is blown by the wind and moves around the sandy places and the dunes actually change their position. The village land is shared by the Uruguayan government and private owners. The government has included the area into the SNAP (Sistema Nacional de Áreas Protegidas) National System of Protected Areas.
