#2 of 8 in Parks in Santiago
Relax with a dip at Quebra Canela Beach, a small urban beach with a nearby shopping mall and a number of hotels. The dark sand's gentle slope and the sheltered cove backed by cliffs provide good swimming conditions, while the long seawall draws fitness-happy locals. The proximity of the city makes this popular beach a prime venue for a number of cultural and water sports events year-round. If you get thirsty, head to one of the few bars on the beach.

  • Best beach in Praia
  • Probably one of the best beaches in Praia. However I found it was too less space (the beach is quite small) for too many visitors.
  • Small cute Beach sheltered from the wind. Dark sand. Secure
