What to see
Dos Bahías Cape

A landscape of volcanic rocks with colours contrasting with the blue sea. 28 km away from Camarones, in the Cabo Dos Bahías Protected Nature Area (doorway to the Patagonia Austral Interjurisdictional Marine Coastal Park), you will find a large colony of Magellanic penguins (from September through March), sea lions, guanacos, steamer ducks, cormorants, South American grey fox and lesser rheas.

The road leading to the penguin colony has several diversions to small coves where it is worth stopping to admire the landscape and the fauna. About 10 km before, there is a diversion leading to Caleta Sara, where you can find accommodation and go sailing or kayaking.


Classified as "Pueblo Auténtico" (Authentic Town), Camarones has coarse-grained beaches, small coves hidden away and a view to the deep blue sea. It is a fishing town to relax, practice water sports, go mountain biking or diving and enjoy fresh sea products.
