For those interested in history and culture, the village itself is a site of interest. With its colorful houses, sandy streets, and lack of electricity, Cabo Polonio offers a glimpse into a simpler way of life. There are also several local artisans who sell handmade crafts, providing visitors with a unique souvenir to take home. Additionally, the village is known for its vibrant music scene, with local musicians often performing in the streets or at the beach.
