Varese Beach

Also known as Varese Bay, this beach is one of the most beautiful and crowded beaches in Mar del Plata. It is located near one of the most emblematic monuments of the city: the Torreón del Monje. This pleasant beach is located in an artificial bay formed by two stone breakwaters that delimit it and control its waves. The main visitors to Playa Varese are families and sportsmen who take advantage of its safe waters to practice water sports. There are tents and umbrellas available for rent, as well as two shops on the beach where you can buy food and drinks.

Port of Mar del Plata

In the port city of Mar del Plata, a visit to one of the main engines of its economy could not be missing: the fishing port. Here you will find several attractions for tourists, such as the boat cemetery and the fishermen's bench where you will find the classic wooden boats that are so characteristic of the place. In the afternoon, when the fishermen return with the catch of the day, we recommend that you go to the port and watch how tourists and locals come to buy the best fresh fish and, if you wish, try it yourself. Also, on your walk around the port you will be able to see a reserve of sea lions that rest near the fishermen all year round, a real spectacle.
