Punta Rasa and Samborombón Bay

Buenos Aires

Two excellent destinations to watch migratory birds that come every year as far as from Canada to feed and reproduce. The landscape is beautiful: beaches, shores, estuaries and crab breeding grounds.

Open to visitors all year round. For migratory shorebird-watching, go from December to March. There is usually a higher concentration of common terns in March.

What to see
Punta Rasa Municipal Nature Reserve

It is 10 km from San Clemente del Tuyú, at the southern tip of the Samborombón Bay, where the La Plata River flows into the sea.


One of the most important stops of migratory birds arriving from the Northern Hemisphere in summer, and from the south in winter, can be found here. In March, from the Faro San Antonio (San Antonio lighthouse), you can see flocks of up to 20 thousand common terns and enjoy the panoramic views.

Amid wild beaches, coastal dunes and small lagoons, you can see dolphins, South American fur seals and common bottlenose dolphins, among other species. It is an ideal place to spend a day outdoors, practising sports such as kitesurfing or fishing.
