Costas de Patagonia, Puerto Madryn

4.6
#3 of 6 in Beaches in Province of Chubut
Beach Nature / Park
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. Before you head to Puerto Madryn, plan trip itinerary details with our user-friendly Puerto Madryn trip builder, to make sure you see all that Puerto Madryn has to offer, including Costas de Patagonia.

  • Located slightly South of the Valdes peninsula and was founded in 1865 growing rapidly thanks to the railway that connected it to Trelew. It is the official and economic starting point to go and visit the natural park of the Valdes peninsula, is a very quiet town, burst from the cold winds even in summer and has a wealth of attractions and activities you can do. Provides any type of service and comfort with very nice views and a very neat and varied waterfront.
