Playa El Doradillo, Puerto Madryn

(1,600+ reviews on the web)
Beach Nature / Park
Catch a glimpse of majestic southern right whales in the wild at Playa El Doradillo. Due to its particular geography, the otherwise unspectacular beach represents one of the few places in South America where you can regularly see these huge whales from land. In fact, the creatures often come within a few meters of the shore, presenting an excellent opportunity to take some memorable photographs. You'll need a bit of luck, though--if conditions aren't right, the whales might not make an appearance. With our online itinerary creator, Puerto Madryn attractions like Playa El Doradillo can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.
