  • I liked the beach because it is away from the wind, the location is very good and has entertainment for all ages. It is the beach that I liked most of Arica.

  • The landscape and beautiful, cold Pacific water but the water is cold, about 17graus. Lots of Sun but has a cold wind, too.

  • Pleasant to a beach that allows you to just enjoy the sounds of the sea. I could do that in winter.
