Bahia Inglesa, Copiapo

4.1
#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.

  • Beautiful beaches and great weather! Advisable to go by car or leasing one because the distances are long and there is no very good locomotion

  • Beautiful but cold clear water beach... is a myth that is the Chilean Caribbean... the temperature of the water is cold as the rest of the country... but the place is wonderful and peaceful, at least in November... All open and available for eating and drinking good transportation to get from boiler... Highly recommended!

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.
