  • Several years ago, we camped to enjoy the whales, slept with that night sound and it was an unforgettable experience. Now, despite not being the whales, we returned for a beautiful evening of mate on his Pebble beach. Pure nature.

  • Very nice place to observe the whales in their natural habitat.. See them there nomas near the coast as they approach the beach when there is high tide is the best time to see them.. It is certainly to enjoy the whole nature
