Punta Tombo is a narrow rocky jutting that merge  into the Atlantic Ocean. The beaches of fine and compacted sand are ideal for the  penguins to dig their nests. Vast areas of land are literally "mined" with shallow caves, where every year the penguins lay their eggs and raise the chicks. The gentle slope of  these beaches also facilitates the movement of land birds that several times a day made the journey between the nests and the sea to feed themselves. The Penguins, although alerts to human intrusion, do not leave their nests so that the interaction is quite direct. In order to prevent accidents and any kind of injuries to animals,  walkways have been built allowing visitors to circulate without bringing down the  caves.
