See lions and other animals at the Beach, 15min walk and decent climbing away. Beautiful spot, but a really bad dirttrack to it. Unfortunately no good windshield.

No elephant seal, no orcas end of March! If you really want to try your luck take the road from Puerto Madryn it's at least a little better and 20km shorter.

This was an incredible experience for us. We stayed for 4 days. The peninsula is flat with strong winds at times. We saw orcas hunting along the shore at each high tide. There was a nature film crew from BBC that came every day. The owner came by and showed us the place to hike down to the beach. Let’s keep this diamond clean :)

Only 10-20 elephant seals for us in this season, no whales, no orcas... we watched the sea may be 3h in the evening (nice sunset by the way) and 1h in the next morning... disappointing. Plus, 150km of bad ripio is hard and tiring (but ok without 4x4 during a dry week)... not sure it’s worth the travel... still a nice and lonely stiff, quite pleasant if there is no wind... don’t go there if is rainy !!!!

Lovely spot to stay, it was very windy in the daytime but it died down during the night. Plenty of elephant seals down on the beach below.

Stayed for 2 nights but didn't see any whale or dolphin. 4 elephant seals that's it, but beside of that its a gorgeous place to camp. Two ways are leading down to the beach, the first here the second 300-400 meters further along the cliff (fishermen using this at low tide).
In dry condition all the roads are no problem for any car!

Wonderful remote spot, we were alone during 2 nights. Only few day tourists. Meeting the sea-elephants is stunning and unique. Orcas patrolled as well. Even we had a period without rain before, the road to Trelew was terrible with lots of wet patches and really bad mud, impassable. We had to leave the road several times, often via detours, but we even drove through the bush, 4x4 absolutely necessary. When it’s wet, take the way to Puerto Marlyn.

really awesome place on top of the cliff. we came from Rawson, the weather was good and the road easy. if it's raining we wouldn't recommend without 4x4 as it gets really muddy. unfortunately too windy for us to stay overnight with our pop-up camper but we got down really close to loads of seals. no whales today, but because it was low tide
we could collect some mussels for dinner.

Bei Nässe nur mit 4WD!
Mussten mit einem Womo 6 km vorher aufgeben und auf der Straße übernachten. Am nächsten Tag ohne Regen beschwerlich aber machbar.
Die Seeelefanten, die über eine Strickleiter direkt am Strand zu erreichen waren, sind ein Highlight. Wir hatten hunderte. Einfach toll.

We visited this place. Here are many sea elephants but the access down to the beach is only possible with a hanging ladder, be careful. The road to here can be very tricky and muddy if its wet. An alternativ is Playa Escondida some km further south with lots of sea elephants and an better access. Pos. s43.67569 w65.34176

Schöner Platz am Ende einer z.T. zerfurchten Piste. Auf dem Plateau hoch über dem Wasser ist es sehr windig. Zu den Seeelefanten kann Mannschaft einem steilen Einstieg runter laufen.

Very nice and lonely spot, elephant seals, whales, birds, we spent 4 nights here.

Only one lonely elephant seals but NO orcas mid March :( There is a wonderful spot with great views and windprotection. Had a good time here. Quiet, only fisherman around. Only negative aspect were the flies since we didn't have any wind.

Amazing spot. With good ground clearance you can drive further down the cliffs and find some features to hide from the wind. Seen a pod of Orcas 10m from shore according to a wildlife photography we met they have been in this bay for the last 9 days at high tide. Don't forget the elephant seals and a random penguin as well!

After being totally disappointed with the Valdes Park we came here and were blown away! This is the best place we have stayed yet! Beautiful views. There is a semi-carved out stairway down to the beach (can be a difficult climb) to see the elephant seals. You can get as close as you want to them and there are hundreds. We were here in November and also watched the whales breach close to shore in the mornings. This spot is unreal! Highly recommend. Tough, long road to get out but well worth it. Bring lots of water.

Road condition is pretty good unless, maybe if it rains. Well worth the visit to see the elephant seals!

The2Dutch. Nice place, Pity that the path to the beach with Sea Lions is very steep. The road to this (5 and 6) are very dusty.

Report Check-In

Road is now well graded & not too bad. Beautiful spot on cliffs but very exposed to wind. The climb down the cliff to the beach is a bit precarious with a rope-ladder down a small section of the cliff-face, but it's worth it to get down to the beach. Even when it was very windy on top, it was sheltered and calm down below.
