Playa Quila Quina, San Martin de los Andes

(4.4/5 based on 1,400+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Going from San Martín de los Andes is very close. Approximately 30 minutes by car. Charge an entry of $120 each adult. We went to the "La Puntilla" beach, very nice and quiet

  • Close to the Centre of San Martín de los Andes, is accessible by Lake or by car by a mountain road coming out of the 7 Lakes route. It has a port which accessed a collective motorboat. On the edge, in the Bay, you can water sports, rent kayaks, or simply enjoy a day of beach and Sun. From the restaurant you have a great view to the Lake. There are other beaches that surround the villa which makes that although there is much competition, always a pleasant lugra is to spend the day. And if you don't want sunbathing, you can tour the streets of the town enjoying the relaxed atmosphere and appreciating the houses and the gardens with fruit trees. There is also a camping site. It is a good program for a day, or half day, given the proximity to the city.

  • Without a doubt, is the best beach on Lake Lácar. If you go by boat, you can enjoy the beautiful Lake Lácar. If you go by car, while much of the road is land, the scenery is wonderful.
