Pinguineras, Ancud

(4.1/5 based on 280+ 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.
