These are magical nooks with rocky elevations and desert beaches, ideal to spend one day in search of new sea horizons.
With a beach that spans for many kilometers both southwards and northwards, the District of Las Grutas
amazes visitors with its very picturesque natural rocks. El Sótano
-whose name stands for “the basement” in Spanish- and Las Ostras
Ravine –which means “the oysters” in Spanish- are two seaside spots lying close to areas accessed by 4WD vehicles.
In order to see these wonders, we drove southwards bordering the beach. After reaching Villa de los Pulperos
, we followed a track towards Piedras Coloradas
(Red Stones), very old formations dating from the Pre-Cambrian period. We left behind the sand hills where sandboarding is usually practiced and drove on for about 15 kilometers before we came to the place known as El Sótano
The tides show an ample difference throughout the day. The best time of the day is before and after the high tide. The cliffs are steep and they feature the greatest biological diversity in the area. This spot is known as an excellent fishery and a perfect location to find octopus.
