  • There are beaches with cliffs but very quiet, uncrowded, not occurring that are located in the heart of Mar del Plata.

  • It is not the best beaches of the area, nor the worst. Usually few people, except in high season.

  • I discovered a very peaceful and spacious Beach on the edge of the cliffs. Location: going down route 11 from MDQ, metres before arriving at the Curamalal Street, there is a public lead-in to this extensive beach. There is little infrastructure (say nothing), only the position of lifeguard. Is can one repair of the Sun starting from some time to the shadow of them cliffs and is a place where the sea takes small pebbles of colors with which is can entertain them children (I took them pockets filled). Well-armed waves are to use the Bodyboard. You can easily Park near the beach.
