Bahia Bustamante

about Bahia Bustamante, Patagonia

Bahía Bustamante is the ideal place to use as a base to explore the Atlantic Patagonian surroundings: a sheep farm, a petrified forest, the sea, the beach, the lighthouse and a sanctuary of sea fauna, notable for its numbers and diversity.

The village has the ocean on one side and the never- ending steppe on the other. The Argentine flag waves behind the old López Bar, the oldest construction and silent witness of bygone days. Peace reigns all around.

The quiet is only interrupted by gusts of wind, the singing of hundreds of species of birds and the breaking of the waves on the shore.

Bahia Bustamante detail

Style

This is the perfect rustic getaway for those travellers who want to experience beautiful nature and scenery.

Setting

Bahia Bustamante is hidden in what could quite possibly be considered one of the most remote and secluded areas in Argentina. On the northern shore of the San Jorge Gulf, it runs a bus service for guests on Mondays to Fridays and is accessible by car. 

Accommodation & Facilities

There are 6 comfortable houses overlooking the ocean. Each one has 2 double bedrooms, a fully equipped bathroom, a living room and outside terrace overlooking the beach and the bay. Each house is equipped with an emergency battery powered light.

Staying at the Sea Front Houses includes full board and all the activities. Upon arrival, a guide will instruct you on the activities planned for your stay: a tour around the peninsula, a boat trip to have a close encounter with the local fauna and abundant bird life, a visit to the Petrified Forest and the ranch, amongst others.

The old Storehouse of the town keeps up a typically Patagonian atmosphere. There you will find other facilities. The restaurant and the club are equipped with pool table, ping pong table and Sapo. The museum provides you with an exhibition of old photographs of the beginnings of the Argentine seaweed industry, which took place on our beaches. The living room invites you to read or simply to contemplate the sea through enormous windows. Bar service is available. This is a truly pleasant way to watch the sea, enjoy the Patagonian skies and the incredible sunsets.

Dining

The Restaurant which offers typical regional food based on Bahia Bustamante’s own production of marine algae, lamb and mutton, fish, and fruit and vegetables from our garden.

Activities

Activities include bird-watching, visits to the local Petrified Forest and archaeological sites, and boat excursions to the Malaspina cove, where there are sea-lion colonies, plus penguin and seabird rookeries. Other options are trips to local estancias—where you might see demonstrations of old-style sheep shearing using scissors—as well as horseback riding, fishing, mountain-bike excursions, and trekking.
