Faro Querandi, Mar Azul

4.4
#13 of 74 in Historic Sites in Province of Buenos Aires
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.

    ... do not miss it, between broad and high dunes South of Villa Gesell. Tired you upload it but is a remarkable landscape. Take advantage of guided explanations.

    Awesome place. Unforgettable views. Pity that the lighthouse appears abandoned and cannot be visited.

    It is so large, it is at a great distance. He did not know him, and arrive by bike along the beach was a challenge. Pity that it was closed.
