Playa Catritre, San Martin de los Andes

(300+ reviews on the web)
Beach
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. Choose to start, finish, or center your holiday on a trip to Playa Catritre by using our San Martin de los Andes vacation builder.

  • It is close enough to go by bike and it was a different experience than biking in the city. I loved it. Not for everyone though, going up the slopes was tougher than I expected. But I recommend it!  more »
  • Went caminanado from SMA, during the journey the views that are spectacular, daria feeling go changing places because the views are changing their appearance depending on the height and the positions of the Sun... wonderful! .. .and the finishing is the arrival at the beach of the Lake... really without words... is a beautiful place!

  • It is a beach we found 4 km from the Centre of san martin... you can go by car or if you have win walk also is a nice option... you grab your camera and take advantage of photographing everything... This amazing in summer beach. in winter is something that I do not recommend.
