  • The island is a nature reserve therefore not accessible on foot. To visit it only can be through boat trips, which depart from the silverside beach. The ride lasts 40 minutes and all the beaches of Algarrobo travel to finalize on the island where you can see penguins of Humboldt.

  • There was a time; an island transformed into isthmus, which up to this transformative environmental madness, today hosted a populous colony of Humboldt penguins. Very near a beach of compacted sandstone, eternal refuge of molluscs and marine specimens extinguished in other catastrophic processes suffered the planet Earth, now in rapid degradation, product of the climate that ago develop tempered water algae where before "lived" the huiro bathed in icy waves. A few steps 2 beaches (Canelo and Canelillo) strangled by real estate greed, wrapping of concrete and glass and gaining in height, the protective green curtain of native forests and exotic pine forests. Yet Fortunately; some few broods of penguins, prehistoric Pelicans and noisy seagulls, mingling in the air with songbirds species of birds from these groves, compete with noisy automobiles, motorcycles and machinery. Algarrobo, continues its tortuous process, maintain the greater possible pleasure with its visitors. I am one permanent it.

  • From the El Canelo Beach a short walk takes you here, very nice place to watch the birds on the island (from afar to respect their habitat) beautiful walk to go with children and best on overcast days when bathing in the sea is not the most required.
