Caleta Valdes

A beautiful spot some 77km from Puerto Piramides in Peninsula Valdes (a UNESCO World Heritage Site), Caleta Valdes lies on the coast of Argentina. Made up of a long, pebbled beach, Caleta Valdes is home to Elephant seals who arrive here in August and spend the following months creating their harem of females. Perhaps the most exciting thing about Caleta Valdes is the opportunity to see Orcas (Killer Whales) hunting seals by purposefully beaching themselves in order to catch their prey between September and April.
