Beaches are not exactly Argentina's strong points. Mar del Plata is a very nice place to go, but more because of its nightlife, culture, dining, etc...than the beauty of the beach. Around Mar del Plata there are more nice cities, but don't expect white sand and warm sea. You can go to Pinamar, San Bernardo, Villa Gessell and many more, very close one to another.
If you head south, Las Grutas is a picturesque small town with a decent beach, a little expensive but pretty. And a few more km south, you'll find Puerto Madryn and Pirámides. Those two are really beautiful, you can see whales, dolphins, pinguins. Something different.
Buen viaje!!!
