All the pics from this page are from a wave called El Paseo that rarely breaks , but when it does it gets hollow , fast and packed with bodyboarders.
Alfonsina is an small beachy close to this other wave El Paseo , its more consistent because its a shorey and when it on its a hollow wave, you can choose from a Right in front of an small jetty that has a take off with some rocks under to a close out (some waves do open tho) , or a left on the other side of the beach in front of a jetty aswell that links with a closeout too.
The atmosphere is good... In summer it's a bit crowded but it's empty on mornings or afternoons. Careful with the first section in front of the rocks. In my opinion this is not a begginers wave when its going off , closeouts with the ocasional a-framey good for bodyboarders.
I like it, I live in front of it and when it's good it's a fun wave for bodyboarding , too bad its a bit polluted.

All this beaches are gonna disappear - All the beaches of La Perla coastline in Mar del Plata are gonna dissapear...they are going to trow the jettys in form of "T" wich is good....but with the rocks they are gonna form two huge T jettys at both sides and they are gonna destroy the swell...hope in big days it forms a right in one of the jettys but we dont know , its a shame

true - well its not a worth buuuut sometimes can get really hollow (can break in summer too so watch it) people dont go to this break (i say swimmers and that shit) because there is no beach its only rocks to get out but you can`t get hurt the break its alfonsina but more at the right its the rocky shore when breaks "el paseo" and "las bocas" (las bocas never breaks only 1 or 2 times in years) but el paseo its a very good wave for body boarding can get hollow and its an easy wave not very crowded nice locals , beware of your things!!
