Pinguineras, Ancud

4.1
#1 of 15 in Outdoors in Isla Chiloe
Meet the local wildlife at Pinguineras, small islands that shelter penguin colonies. Just off the coast of Punihuil's beach, the islands are home to two species of penguins, the Humboldt and the Magellanic. Take a boat trip around the windy islands, enjoy the views of the surrounding area from the beach, or visit the restaurant that serves fresh seafood and empanadas. Besides the penguins, you will see many seabirds here--if you're lucky, you might spot otters, sea lions, and even a whale.

    Worth, only to arrive, the road is very nice. A boat trip is something typical, where you learn bird... crazy cheese pie is also not to be missed

    Only 29 km. to the South West of Ancud by completely paved road Puñihuil islets are their lovely Penguin colonies and the restaurants on the beach of the same name where you can taste delicious pies with cheese and seafood (the best in the Restaurant The corner of the Caleuche at the end of the beach).
