Playa Larga, Ushuaia

4.2
#9 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.

  • The Playa Larga is located on National Route 3, distant from the Centre of Ushuaia. We visited this beach for a walk. The water is too cold (October), there are barbecues and a lawn to sit and admire the beach and the mountains. Beautiful scenery.

  • We were a day of autumn much trust, 1 degree and wind. We could not appreciate it at the time where the inhabitants of Ushuaia used it in order to spend the summer. Beautiful view of all modes.

  • Although not in the Centre of Ushuaia, well worth visiting. The beach has a beautiful visual of the Bay and the mountains with snowy peaks. In addition to an extensive lawn to sit and admire the scenery.

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.
