Surfing

In high season, Cabo Polonio's surf school, operated by local residents Mario and Ruben, offers surfing classes and board rentals.

Wildlife Watching

Wildlife viewing in Cabo Polonio is excellent year-round. Below the lighthouse, southern sea lions (Otaria flavescens) and South American fur seals (Arctocephalus australis) frolic on the rocks. You can also spot southern right whales from August to October, penguins on the beach between May and August, and the odd southern elephant seal (Mirounga leonina) between January and March on nearby Isla de la Raza.
