Playas - Beach Caleta Olivia - Argentina

Extending 80 kilometers (48 mi) along Golfo San Jorge, from the northern Playa Bonita to the southern Las Golondrinas, are over a dozen beaches where you can join the locals in sunbathing, windsurfing and kayaking. In summer, the tranquil waters of the gulf are warm enough to take a dip. Most are virgin stretches of rough sand and pebbles.

The Balneario Municipal, just south of the muelle viejo, or old wharf, is within the city (Costanera and 25 de Mayo), as is Playa Las Roquitas, north of the petro storage tanks (acceso norte). Continuing northward are Laguna de los Patos (5 km / 3 mi), La Escondida (15 km / 9.3 mi), Puerto Roto (17 km / 10.5 mi), La Encajada (19 km / 11.8 mi), Bajada de la Osa (30 km / 18 mi), Playa Ansina (40 km / 24 mi) and Playa Bonita (45 km / 28 mi).

To the South of the city are Lancha de Agüero (13 km / 8 mi), El Cruce (17 km / 10.5 mi), La Zarand (25 km / 15.5 km), Bahía Lángara (27 km / 16.8 mi), Supe (31 km / 19.3 mi), Los Sauces (33 km / 20.5 mi) and Las Golondrinas (35 km / 22 mi).
