  • The beach is large and wide, like the waterfront promenade. The place is to be, enjoy the Sun and relax lying on the sand. But it is not suitable for swimming, its waves is quite heavy.

  • cute ride that still does not end, but rather promises. The surf of the beach is more moved and is windy, but ideal for walking by sector

Where to stay in Iquique
