Formerly a booming sheep-ranching settlement, founded in the late 1800s, the cape was abandoned by the 1950s. Now a wonderful Argentine family is attempting a slow revival through sustainable tourism. They labored for eight years to restore the coast; once littered with decades of garbage, it now sparkles with the powerful, spare beauty nature intended. There's plenty of coastal walking, DIY bird watching, kayaking and fishing. Surfing's at its best here when the north wind blows in August.
