Punta Perdices: the Caribbean beach of Patagonia

Punta Perdices was transformed into the vedette of the Port of San Antonio Oeste (Rio Negro). Those who could visit it say it is the “Caribbean of Patagonia”.

Río Negro

Located 60 kilometers from  Las Grutas , Punta Perdices was not yet reached by the voracity of rionegrino tourism. It is recognized as  one of the 5 virgin  beaches  on the coast of our country. 

Hidden inside San Antonio Bay, which is reached by Puerto San Antonio East, it is considered the best in the region.  Also known as Caleta Falsa , it is a sea arm that penetrates the continent hundreds of meters as a minor bay, allowing the shelter of the wind.

Punta Perdices is characterized by its  white sand ,  turquoise sea and an  intense blue sky . Its natural beauty surprises at any time of the day because, as in all this part of the Atlantic region,  the landscape changes with the behavior of the sea . Thus, one of the unique moments you live is when the tide rises. The crystal clear water remains in the bay and, in the absence of waves, is transformed into a  natural swimming pool. 

The beach has a medano de conchilla, a round stone beach and finally sand. Many say it has a “U” shape. Thus, these three distinct landscapes allow visitors more than one option to spend the day.

 Some important data 

On this  lonely beach  there are no services and you can only reach by car. Don't expect the churrero or the choclero to happen! Those who wish to visit it are recommended to arrive provided with everything they need to spend the day. Plenty of water, food, umbrella, sun protection, flops, goggles or snorkeling equipment to enjoy the background, are some of the essential elements to spend the day in this paradise place.

Those who do not arrive scheduled food to spend the day can wait for the sunfall and  eat in the Port of San Antonio Este . There are some canteens where you can taste fresh seafood.

From the port, you can see another of the postcards offered by this paradisiacal place.The view of fishing vessels and boats entering the San Antonio Oeste pier are a great attraction for photography lovers.
