Located on the ruggedly beautiful Patagonian coast just south of Peninsula Valdes, Bahia Bustamante is a unique and very much off-the-beaten track destination.

The small town was founded many years ago by a small estancia (ranch) to harvest the seaweed in the area. More recently the area has been accepting guests drawn by the greatest diversity of seabirds in Patagonia with 21 breeding colonies. These include Steamer Ducks, Magellan Penguins and Chilean Flamingos amongst many others.

Marine life is also abundant in the crystal clear waters with many sealions commonplace, and orcas and dolphins often spotted. The bay is dotted with small islets and white sandy beaches making it a beautiful place to explore.
