History of Las Gaviotas

In a perfect rectangle laid out by Almirante Brown Avenue, San Martín Avenue, Monte Hermoso Avenue and the seafront parade, exactly 77 blocks make up the small town of Las Gaviotas.

History goes that, after Villa Gesell emeged, these lands as well as Mar de las Pampas and Mar Azul were left in oblivion as the pavement only reached the end of the village. Due to irreconciliable differences, the lands where Las Gaviotas stands today were hardly accessed by a road made of sand.

Time has passed and today, even if it has not been paved due to a decision made by its residents, the road to Las Gaviotas is in perfect maintenance condition. As a consequence, thousands of visitors gather here every year to enjoy this new seaside resort on the Atlantic coast.

This district, which in the last few years has began to take off, occupies only 700 meters in a space between the Districts of Mar de las Pampas and Mar Azul.

Visitors should pay attention when going along Punta del Este Avenue, as the town begins on the corner of Almirante Brown Avenue and ends at Gral. San Martín Avenue.

However, it is the Mediterranean architecture of its hotels and resorts which immediately indicates that this is a different place.

Beauty and frank materials such as stone, wood, glass and water –as most resorts display a view of the sea from any of their windows- have been perfectly combined in its buildings.

Unlike Mar Azul and Mar de las Pampas, the forest and its sandhills are not present in this area, thus permitting a view of the sea from its streets.

The sea is the main protagonist of this new bathing spot whose resorts feature all the services and amenities visitors need in order to become isolated from the outer world and only get out when necessary. To fly, like the seagulls that wander about the town.
