Valdes Peninsula
Not far from the town of Puerto Madryn, Valdes Peninsula is a protected area, a World Heritage site, made up of cliffs, beaches and shoals. There are several beaches where it’s possible to see Magellanic Penguins, some an arm length away. Also on show are sea lions and the Southern Elephant Seal. Depending on the season you can also go whale spotting and there is a sandy beach and small township at Puerto Pirámides, with an informative Visitor Centre at the entrance to the Peninsula. I spotted Guanaco – a type of llama, Armadillo and the Lesser Rhea, an ostrich-type bird. #Argentina #Valdes Peninsula #wildlife
