Playa Quila Quina, San Martin de los Andes

(1,400+ reviews on the web)
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.
