Caleta Valdes, Puerto Piramides

4.6
#4 of 12 in Outdoors in Puerto Piramides
Keep your eyes peeled for marine wildlife and sea mammals at Caleta Valdes, a beach area with the appropriate climate and geographic conditions to shelter various species. Enjoy sweeping views of the beach from one of several lookout points, which offer panoramic perspectives over the azure seas, backed by verdant cliffsides. Droves of elephant seals and Magellanic penguins live in the area, a reserve started in 1983 in order to protect these species, and others. Sea lions and birds also call this area home at various times of the year.

Where to stay in Puerto Piramides

A small village consisting of two streets, Puerto Piramides offers limited options, so it's a good idea to reserve well in advance of your visit. You can choose between several hostels, rental apartment properties, and mid-range hotels with a decent selection of modern amenities. If you come here to experience the nature and whale-watch, or just wish to sleep under the stars, consider staying at a designated campground.
