Experiencing Gorgona

On land

An ideal activity is to walk along the paths to visit the old jail, the old wharf, the eco-store, and the archaeology room. A motorboat ride takes visitors around the island, and then reaches La Camaronera to enjoy the sea and the ten brooks that spread their waters on the sand.
