Sun and Sand
The micro climate of Peninsula Valdes offers its beaches up for enjoyment and exploration during several months of the year. From December through March, summer in the southern hemisphere, Puerto Piramides and its beaches are known as an excellent tourist attraction. Summer is the dry season and the uninterrupted sunny days begin between 5 and 6 in the morning and sun setting later than 9 in the evening. Although this is an area known for its winds, the natural protection that the bay of Puerto Piramides offers means that navigation and water sports are possible in the bay of Piramides much more than in other parts of Coastal Patagonia. Even though the months of May through August are cold, from September to April the climate is favorable, more so than in the rest of Patagonia. There are many beaches, varying in size and dimension. Keep in mind the huge tidal change that can offer from more than a kilometer to just a few meters of accessible sand, depending upon the beach.
