“Pretty cool and tons of birds!”
At first sight, many think Bahía Encerrada to be a lake, but it is in fact, as its Spanish name confirms, a "confined bay."

Went for a birding walk around this bay and into the nature preserve and were quite impressed at the number of shore and seabirds we spotted! Great resource right on the edge of the city

There isn't anything outstanding about the bay itself, but you can behold spectacular views there at sunrise and sunset. I found it to be a good place to take pictures in Ushuaia. Also, it is nice to take a walk around the bay.

The bay itself is not too clean, but it makes for a nice stroll and you can sit on the grass on the hills on the opposite side and take a look at the city while sipping a mate :)
