We went for a night time stroll and i loved the boardwalk! With decorative gardening, skate parks, jam packed with vendors and children's activities (bouncy castles and the like), we had a lovely stroll along the boardwalk buzzing with activity on a Sunday night. There...More

Water is really cold but the waves are great for surfing and there are hardly any people on the beach compared to playa cavancha.
