Open to visitors all year round. To enjoy the sun and the beach, you can go from November to March.

The island offers an ideal setting to watch birds and observe wildlife, including alligators, black howlers (in the Panco Cué area) and capybaras, as well as some rare plants such as the Yataí Poñí dwarf palm tree.

The Apipé Grande Provincial Park, created in 2021, covers an important part of the island and includes the Hermosa, Camba Cué and Sirena lagoons formed in an old riverbed.
