Taking Route 3 and then Provincial Route J, 75 kilometers from the city of Ushuaia, you reach an area that combines a coastal environment with the history of the first European settlements on the island, and the culture of artisanal fishing. Near the coast, the route forks.
If you continue the route to the right you will find Puerto Almanza, a picturesque town located on the coast, known mainly for the development of artisanal crab fishing.
This coastal town has a gastronomic offer based on the resources offered by the Beagle Channel. Most of its population is dedicated to the fishing of mollusks, sea bass and the coveted spider crab; there are also mussel, sea urchin and trout farms. In the last few years, there have also been developed enterprises for the horticultural production, especially of fine fruit.
Some nautical excursions depart from Almanza to the islands of the channel and some gastronomic establishments offer activities to be carried out during the day.

On the other hand, if you choose the road to the left, you will arrive at Estancia Harberton, one of the first permanent European settlements. It belongs to the Bridges family, founders of the first Anglican Mission. The place is an interesting place to enjoy history, science and gastronomy.
Puerto Almanza and Estancia Harberton are good options to get to know the outskirts of Ushuaia and enjoy an original and local gastronomic offer.
