Playa Bristol, Mar del Plata

1.0
#7 of 14 in Beaches in Mar del Plata
Beach Nature / Park
A popular beach in the heart of the city, Playa Bristol can be seen packed with people during the day, filled with hundreds of neatly arranged shade tents and umbrellas. Several boulevards hug the beachfront featuring monuments, historical buildings, and tall hotel apartments towering over the shoreline. The beach gently continues for 2 km (1.2 mi) and provides picturesque panoramic views. The ocean features a small shore break with moderately clean waters but unfortunately it is common to find litter scattered along the shore. Playa Bristol is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our international travel planner, Mar del Plata Edition.

  • The panoramic view is beautiful. Good on morning, to make some exercises and to stay just looking to the waves. In the afternoon, it's full. To swim, no way.  more »
  • You can be close to the port or go to the sector of rocks and fish or take photos with shock waves.

  • It is not a recommended Beach, is a world of people always and is very dirty. It should only go if this very closely, but I recommend going to the Varesse.
