Playa la virgen, Caldera

(3.8/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web)
Stranded on the coast in the middle of desert dunes and hills, Playa la virgen attracts visitors with its white sand and calm turquoise waters. A bit remote and difficult to access, this pristine beach focuses on ecotourism. Pick a place on a wooden sun lounger under a straw umbrella, or bring your own beach equipment. If you wish to stay overnight, rent one of the wooden cabins in the surrounding hills overlooking the beach. Amenities include public restrooms, a spacious parking lot, and a restaurant. Bring cash and prepare to spend a day without mobile phone service. See Playa la virgen and all Caldera has to offer by arranging your trip with our Caldera vacation route planner.

  • Was like summer was too full, there were many people and there was no place to settle, the collection of 10,000.-pesos, beach parking seems to me to be excessive is cute, waters turquoise, white sand, but the water is very cold, it is a nice place to visit during the year and not in summer, the access road is bad, the car vibrates a lot , but it is a nice place to meet, they say it's the most beautiful beach of chile

  • Quiet and not very crowded of people, the beach is clean, exquisite, and camping site is very good for rest, that if you don't have plugs and the shower water is not very hot.

  • The beach is small but is well marked and has lifeguards. The color of water is a stunning blue. For those who like hiking, after a swim, it pays to go for a walk to the rocks and look for a place to watch the sunset, there is a restaurant specializing in seafood and a kiosk that sells consumer products like beverages, sandwiches and empanadas.
