Playa Larga, Ushuaia

4.2
#7 of 18 in Beaches in Patagonia
Spreading along a mountainous coastline, Playa Larga abuts on a huge old beech forest traversed by a long hiking trail (which is, as legend has it, the land of leprechauns). The almost barren hills above the beach offer panoramic views of the city, as well as barbecue spots. Have a picnic, hike through the forest or walk on the beach, sunbathe, or simply take in the views of the snowcapped mountains, the channel, and the city of Ushuaia.

  • Beautiful location and quiet to spend an afternoon. From the city take the collective line A, and lower before entering the neighborhood "640 housing". Walk down the dirt road right some 15 min, after the curve appear viewpoints and down to the beach area. It's very windy, and this very clean.

  • A beautiful and quiet place surrounded by nature where to rest, walk and breath of fresh air on the coast of the Beagle.

  • A beautiful place to go to take mates. A few minutes from the city of Ushuaia in auto. Having no qualms of the mountains, there is usually enough wind. Views of the city, the port and channel are beautiful.

Where to stay in Ushuaia

Despite its nickname, Ushuaia is certainly not the end of the world when it comes to finding comfortable lodgings--as long as you plan ahead and reserve your room in advance. Hotels and hostels are equally crowded here during the peak season (October to March), so it's advisable to arrive with a solid reservation in hand. If you choose to visit during the winter (June to mid-September), expect to find many establishments closed for the season.
