You can get to Quila Quina by boat, or by car. We did it by car, through a nice mountain road, not paved, so extreme care is needed during the journey. The place is worth it.

Great beach to hang out, you can get there by bike or car, and the best way for me is to take the speed boat! You can enjoy the beautifulness of the Lacar Lake and all the shore around you.

Very long drive only to get to the other side of the same (beautiful!) lake. And it costs money... I would just go to any other part of the lake :)

This is probably a great place to better enjoy either during spring or summer rather than in June when I visited it. The most remarkable aspect in this time of the year is the peace you can find in this beach and the outstanding view...More

A 40 minute ferry brings us to playa Quila Quina. The ferry does not sail every hour, you have to inquire at the office in the harbour of San Martin de los Andes. The boattrip itself is the best part of our visit, the beach...More
