This is the river bank turned into a beach in the city centre. It's deserted during the day as everyone is having a siesta during the hot humid hours, but at night it livens up and is a romantic place to walk.

This is a wonderful beach on the Parana River, with a view of Posada, Argentina on the far shore. It's a wide beach with fine sand (no gravel !) and offers a variety of options for food and beverages at the edge of the beach.
It's also very secure - there's a police patrol, but I never saw the need for that during the day.
There is ample parking.

Very beautiful sunsets! Nice place to visit on the weekend as it is more full with locals and tourists and really nice Latino music!

We walked around encarnacion all day and it was pretty boring to tell you the truth. We were s little disappointed that lonely planet had mentioned it as a top place to visit in South America because it made us add it to our travel plans.
When we got to the beach at around 7pm on the first day we were a little blown away. The view of posadas is amazing and the sunset was wonderful. This is the best thing about encarnacion without a doubt!

the "encarncaenos" know how to take care of the beach! it´s allways clean, there is some recent history around this place, because some neighborhoods where flooded by the Yacyreta-dam, and so playa San José was born! The only thing i don´t like is the loud music at the shops and restaurants at the beach.
