Fodor's Expert Review Isla Gorriti

Punta del Este Island

Once the site of a prison, Isla Gorriti now attracts a different type of exclusive crowd. High-end residents with their own boats often set Gorriti as their destination to play and party for the day. You can catch a ferry ride from the marina, though, and make a day trip of it. Note that the island is reachable only by boat. (The parador, or beach club, has a good restaurant.)
