Playa Catritre, San Martin de los Andes
(3.5/5 based on 260+ reviews on the web)
Relax on the shores of Playa Catritre, a lakeside beach close to the Patagonian town of San Martín de los Andes. You can reach the beach via bicycle from San Martín, although the hilly path might be more tiring than you'd anticipated. If you're feeling brave, take a dip in the lake's chilly waters. For a refreshing evening under the stars, bring your tent and stay overnight at the beach's campsite. Expect large crowds during summer, when people stay until the sunset at around 8 pm.

  • It is always very nice to visit Catritre, even when it is not summer and not you bathe. The landscape is impressive and you can spend a good time in family. Beware the road with small vehicles

  • Very quiet place. As we were in the low season, day of week, there were no stores. Only baths. We agreed to foot from SM de los Andes (1 hr approximately by the side of the road) with beautiful scenery. Highly recommended place to spend an afternoon mates if you are casual visitor.
