Costas de Patagonia, Puerto Madryn

4.6
#3 of 6 in Beaches in Province of Chubut
Costas de Patagonia features a rugged desert-like landscape with dunes, cliffs, shoals, islets, and deep blue ocean inhabited by southern elephant seals, sea lions, and millions of Magellanic penguins. Walk along the shore across tranquil beaches covered in fine sand or pebbles. Bring binoculars and try to spot killer whales, dolphins, and the southern right whale--the largest marine mammal--which breeds in the calm waters here from May to December before returning to the open sea. Numerous beach huts provide shelter for a bit of respite, and you can enjoy a typical Patagonian meal, such as baby roasted lamb or meat empanadas, at one of the many restaurants. Other ways to explore this area of natural abundance include canoeing, kayaking, and diving.

    The beaches of the Center have much place to walk. All very neat. You are hacjendo a beautiful waterfront that is lit in the Center and everything along. More remote beaches are stunning, you can see all types and color of weapon and stones. Near the Centre is one of the springs that you can go walking and where does a boat that crosses the Gulf

    To traverse several times, all neat and very clean. It is people living at another rate. From the beach whales can be seen all the time, and it is ideal for walking it. When low tide is more than 300 meters wide, and you can reach the Centre. A pleasure all the time
