Playa El Doradillo, Puerto Madryn

(1,600+ reviews on the web)
Beach
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.

  • The municipality or the province should keep better the access road. The view is amazing

  • I visited this beautiful place at least 4 years in a row until 2012, and I can say that I really enjoyed your tranquility, beauty and warm waters in summer. If what you want is to avoid the balls on the face, the cries of the people and the proximity to the city, an ideal place is this beach, about 3 kms. extension, distant 10 kms. North of Puerto Madryn, and will find a people similar to the Madryn in terms of extension, but quite calm beach. As a warning, he indicated that to access it, you must go on a dirt road in very good condition, but reach the beach, if he is not in 4 x 4 vehicle, not even trying to find a place to accommodate getting the side roads or sand, because they will be stuck and must ask for help. At least until the year 2012, nor there were settlements of trade where to buy things to eat, so that is one who must take all.
