Playa Bristol, Mar del Plata
(1/5 based on 110+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • It is a central beach that connects with the pedestrian. The sand is very Brown and the dark water, there is a fair on the beach to buy souvenirs, costumes of bathrooms and glasses. It is good to know the sea but the water is very cold and dirty to get water.

  • That's the word to describe this central beach where unfortunately the participants do not respect hygiene norms. The lifeguards of the same stand out for their excellent professionalism.

  • the beach is more popular from Mar del Plata... It is not pretty... which Mar del Plata and not want to move far away has it in front of the casino and the plaza Colón, which is an inevitable point of knowing if you're going to Mar del Plata... I do not recommend it for anything since it is always full and they will walk the locals and is full of street vendors that don't leave calm... everything weather full and cannot walk or enjoy quiet beach because there is too much noise all the time
