#2 of 12 in Things to do in Villa Gesell
Head to the second-highest Argentine lighthouse at Faro Querandi, built in an area once comprised entirely of dunes. To prevent erosion and protect the structure, authorities planted a forest around the lighthouse, which remains a major local landmark. Visitors can explore the structure during their trip to the beach, where swimming, barbecuing, and four-wheeling are popular activities.

  • The lighthouse itself is no big deal as a tourist attraction. Since a few months ago it is closed to the public for problems with insurance, so you can not enter and climb to the lighthouse. Only reach the foot of the same. In addition no one to receive you, which can be very boring to go on your own. Its immediate vicinity are a small and located, forest with many felled trees. In addition you can not tour much forest or stay. Instead, the trip to the lighthouse from sea blue is an adventure. You atravesás the extensive reserve dunícola, which is a different landscape. Pure sand, dotted with some that another lagoon with some vegetation and some native waterfowl. A mi me apena is not more careful place, being a natural reserve. I went Quad at the beginning of March, leaving at 17 h 30. and returning at 19 h 30. and the return coincided with the sunset. It is a beautiful sight to see the sunset over the dunes and then the moon over the sea. Highly recommended. See here the same Honda Pampa Beach for the tour on ATVs.

  • Nice place to visit
  • Only with a 4x4 cars
  • It used to be a great place. Now you can not visit, you can not climb to the dunes, you can not go with any kind of vehicle on them. There is a place where you can make a picnic within the pre-established areas to navigate. He would not return. It is preferable that they charged a bond and provide any service

  • Target end of a beautiful journey with vehicle 4 x 4 among the dunes. Good choice for a day of wind, since the Sandhills allow you to enjoy the Sun repaired wind. Recommended for those who seek a quiet place away from the masses.

  • Beautiful place to go by truck or ATV. If you want peace and very few people. Very large, warm beaches! Nice to walk, but to take into account that up to the lighthouse are almost 11 km from blue sea! The entrance to the reserve is approximately 5 km. Also you can enter from the route through a private field passing blue sea (6 km). There they charge something since they deflate you gums for the arena and out again to inflate them. Super quiet fishing or to make toples!
