  • It is a very quiet beach with serene sea (and not cold water as expected from Chile). White sand and wide beach.

  • A beach with calm waves for children, and an environment without flaites as in the lighthouse, there are dressing rooms and low-priced bathrooms, artisan fair and fast food. If you go to the 4th region is a safety pin

  • A nice beach, quieter than La Serena. We were in a Airbnb in front of the beach and it was really relaxing.

  • A very quiet place, although there is little parking, there are nearby places where you can leave your transportation. Already on the beach there is a quiet environment, with activities that can be done in the sea, the area is limited for safety of people who want to bathe, there are adjacent places that offer food and juices. The temperature of the water and the tranquility of the sea make it a perfect place to enjoy and rest. Totally recommended.
