  • In season, you have to walk about 1000 meters until you arrive because they do not allow to enter by car, complicated when you go with small children. Interesting to see them, but they are after a wiring on a beach very small, dirty, and full of debris. All care to be a nature reserve.

  • It is a reserve of sea lions who settled in the port of Mar del Plata since 1965. You can see them close by sunbathing beside the boat. Love the boys see them so close.

  • Very nice the breakwater. Pity that you can not enter wolves beach but a few metres of them can see and hear. It also offers a nice view of the coastal marplatence.

  • The place is no big deal but if you have luck you can see many wolves. It is sadly filled with "rags" and have to pay to get out of the car and take a miserable picture
