    Beautiful and wide beach of stones. It is across a gravel road. This tour consists of several beaches and each of them is different from the other.

    We went in July around 17 pm and were lucky to see the whales very nearby, a whale MOM with her calf just 20 metres. Beautiful experience! Free and open access.

    Of all the beaches in the area of el Doradillo, La Cantera is from which there are whales to shorter distance and at the same height from the ground. Elsewhere the best places tend to be from the terrain elevations that build beautiful balconies from where to observe the fantastic Blue Sea and await the emergence of a southern franc. But from La Cantera, whales are there, very close and the area is a vast and beautiful Patagonian beach. It is important to know the tides table for approaching at high tide.
