San Jose Beach, Encarnacion

Beach · Outdoor Activity
Soak up the sun overlooking the Paraná River at San Jose Beach, a charming golden sand beach with an upbeat atmosphere that comes alive when the sun sets. From the comfort of a lounge chair, gaze over the clear water towards a unique urban skyline.

A wide esplanade runs along the sand, great for walking, cycling, and rollerblading. Play volleyball on one of the several courts while music plays from the beach bars. At night people come here to party at the bars and restaurants. To visit San Jose Beach on your trip to Encarnacion, use our Encarnacion day trip planning site.
