  • A view that you contact us directly with nature in its fullest expression, placing us metres of these large sea creatures. It is ideal to let children know about these fragrant animals.

  • Nice place to bring kids, no more than 10 minutes because there is not much place to stop. Only accessible with car

  • It is always nice to see sea lions. Pity cared little that is the zone, there is enough trash on the beach.

  • A way of seeing different sea lions. They are close and you can feel how they are. Non-virtual reality. I imagine that in the future the authorities of Mar del Plata sedated account of the potential that has the reserve and will adapt the place into tourism and visitors. A good posters would come more than good and would provide information necessary for the non-expert eye.

  • It is very easy to reach! If you are to the bottom to see the waves, careful with the car, because it is filled with salt water
