  • Excellent beach for sunbathing or swimming. The waves are not large. It is very easily accessible and for children to have fun safely.

  • The beach of the Horseshoe is a classic of vacacionamos in la serena for a long time, family, the waves are low and there is always a good atmosphere, highly recommended

  • Its horseshoe-shaped it is an advantage for the waves decrease, making it water very quiet and very suitable for young children. It also has life for greater security, with enough space for long tourist summer season. You can get on bus, to standing by the catwalks on the highway or in private vehicles although it should arrive early because something few parking lots. Highly recommended. I'm going every year in summer with family polola and friends.
