Playa La Herradura, Coquimbo

(3.8/5 based on 220 reviews on the web)
Meet the locals at Playa La Herradura, featuring a wide stretch of soft sand ideal for hanging out with friends and family. The water is calm and not too deep, making this a great beach for kids and novice swimmers.

  • Exquisite water for bathing fun. The only point against is that it is very surrounded by buildings, but then one forgets :D

  • Visited the Horseshoe and the water was exquisite, although them algae of the sea were somewhat troublesome, after a while already is spent and could enjoy of the sea calm, them waves minimum and moments pleasant with it temperature accurate to weather the heat and not frosting you. With good space in the arena for our things, not very collapsed of people what helps to the rest and them typical vendors of ice cream and sweet what supports the hunger of the beach. Much ideal is enjoyed all day.
