The Pinamar coastline offers a beautiful combination of beaches with boutique hotels, luxurious restaurants and spas, and beautiful pine forests. This destination is very trendy among Buenos Aires residents because the spot is located only a 3-hour drive from the capital. Next to it, there is Cariló, a picturesque place with maintained resorts that are not cheap.

As for Patagonia beaches, most of them are too chilly for sunbathing or swimming at any time of the year. There are some warmer spots though. One of the most popular beaches known for its unspoiled nature is Las Grutas. The beaches there have some of the purest white sand and warmest waters you’ll find along the coastline of Argentina. Wildlife is another benefit of this location. Watch whales from June through December, penguins from September through April, and elephant seals and sea lions throughout the whole year.
