  • Super spacious beaches... difficult but worthwhile. And the sand is clean... the parador is expensive and a pity that free and Sun concerts there is no as a few years ago

  • Very spacious beaches, is far from the central part but it is worth it. If you were to have lunch it is recommended since the bar that is in that area is not good value for money. Highly recommended to move away a little of the Mar del Plata chaos!
