Pinguineras, Ancud
(4.1/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web)
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. Plan your visit to Pinguineras and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Ancud holiday planner.

  • It is not easy to reach and is not in the path. The trip is one of the best landscapes of Chiloé, experience is brief (30-minute app) but visit the penguins and fauna of the sector in their reproductive migration is wonderful. Well guided and recommended in December visit tour of whales. Visit from late September until March app during the day.

  • It is a beautiful place, beach is typical landscape of Chiloé, with colorful boats a wide Beach, overlooking the Pacific Ocean, the way to get to the Penguin colonies is wonderful, dan wanted to stop is several parts to take photos in a few natural vantage points that leave open-mouthed. This place is very close to Ancud and has a very rich restaurants that take advantage of the benefits of the sea
