Bahia Inglesa, Copiapo

Beach Nature / Park
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.

  • Very well presented, quiet, clean and pleasant in the off-season with nice restaurants along the beach, small exhibition artisanal and pleasant mini waterfront walking with children... In sum, great panorama to visit family in low season

  • Beautiful place, turquoise, waters very touristic. Rather saturated and unfortunately waaaaay cold wind, brrrrr

  • They told us that it was a "must" in the North, and has indeed been one of the places that I liked most of the region. Host them on the rocks of the Bay hotel, view beautiful, it has 4 or 5 floors, eye that has no elevator, rooms are spacious and very comfortable. Ask not to be near the stairs because the people gets to talk just when they come up. We ate in the restaurant "El Plateao" pretty good, fish and seafood, the natural juices rich, the only "but" the Lord who attends is half bad temper or little empathy. Eye came in season low, it's cold in August, and there aren't many people, so it makes it more enjoyable.

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.
