Bahia Inglesa, Copiapo

4.0
#1 of 16 in Things to do in Copiapo
Named after the visit of an English privateer, Bahia Inglesa remains a popular destination for beach aficionados. Take a swim in the warm, shallow waters, and nap or sunbathe on the white sandy beach. While the slope of the sand makes shallow waters good for children, be aware that some areas are rocky. The area adjacent to the beach offers lodging from hotels to campgrounds and many different restaurant options. Bahia Inglesa is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our custom trip planner, Copiapo Edition.

    As I always say it is a beautiful, little place. Moves well in amigosm and the family has good restaurants and the edging of the sea somewhere that you can eat oysters at good price.

    It is worth knowing, if you've seen photos and information, you will not be surprised. It is what you will find; a nice place, with beaches of turquoise waters, etc.

Where to stay in Copiapo

The most popular places to stay are just north of Copayapu/Route 5, with the rest of the town primarily residential. The town's pretty boutique hotels offer private pools and gardens, while simple, family-run guesthouses provide fewer frills but charge considerably less. If you're planning to use the town as a base for desert explorations, consider staying in a rented apartment.
