  • The corridor of beach large is a place very pleasant with good views, excellent bars and restaurants for breakfast or lunch. The area recently re-modelada is an option for a nice ride

  • The beach is near the Naval Base of Mar Del Plata. Usually in sunny day of January is pretty full, but it's not one of the best. The good is walk on the edge or be in a bar drinking with friends.
