Welcome to Los Iros Beach Facility. Here is the ideal place to safely park your vehicle, a really beautiful setting to relax and even have a bit of a swim after the beach walk, as well as the ideal starting point of our beach walk.

We walk for 2 miles along the coastline until we reach to Erin fishing depot where you can put in your advance order of fish on your return from Chatham. Once we pass Erin Fishing Depot, the action starts where from here onward, its just as good as virgin territory we will be trekking all along. Beautiful rocks, stones and natural formations all along our journey. You will truly be captivated with the natural ruggedness as you trek along. 

When we eventually reach at Chatham Beach, actual name being "ERIN BEACH", we will relax here for a short while before we board our waiting maxi taxi. We will be transported back to Los Iros via Buenos Ayres and Erin Villages.
