Playa Quila Quina, San Martin de los Andes

4.4
#1 of 13 in Parks in San Martin de los Andes
Beach Nature / Park
Swim in an iconic Patagonian setting at Playa Quila Quina, located on the southern shores of Lake Lacar. Expect a sizeable crowd here, as ferries bring batches of tourists from San Martin several times a day, and many others arrive by car. Look for a small track branching off from the beach, which will lead you through the trees to Arroyo Grande, a nearby waterfall where you can escape the crowds. Our San Martin de los Andes vacation planner makes visiting Playa Quila Quina and other San Martin de los Andes attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • We went with the catamaran excursion, and even if it is real there is no other place for lunch for those that we did not in the very nice restaurant that we stopped, be so long with nothing more than to see that three posts of crafts and a closed hood, not to enjoy the beach by weather, two hours is too long to stay

  • Unfortunately did not accompany the climate but the navigation and site are worth not to be missed!

  • There is a boat that takes you from San Martin of the Andes.Tambien you can get in car. The road is not maintained well, so you should go with caution. The place is beautiful, with nature that you can live and enjoy. There is a confectionary with a tremendous view of the Lake Lacar.Si you go, go to visit the waterfall. Super recommended!

Where to stay in San Martin de los Andes

Only a small portion of San Martin de los Andes actually touches Lake Lacar, but it's there that most of the best accommodations can be found. Cozy ski chalets and lodges make up the majority of places to stay here, although a few budget hostels offer something for travelers with limited means. During peak times, the town center can get quite noisy at night. Stay a few minutes out of town for a quieter experience with memorable views.
