  • Very nice beach! But only for sunbathing and playing with sand. The waves are awesome. So I recommend only knee-length and bind very well to children by the hand. Therefore, it is a less frequented beach.

  • It is the best beach in iquique, the bad thing is that it is not suitable for bathing, but it is quiet, clean and no that amount of people selling all kinds of food contamination. If you want to be quiet. This is the place.

  • When one reads that it is not suitable for bathing is doubted if go to stay there or not, so that if they are in doubt stay on the beach that is beautiful, I rent an apartment on the floor on this beach and from the saw 26 passing dolphins , in front of our seals. It is not suitable for swimming because it is like being in Copacabana in Rio is a beach of very strong waves but in comparison to other beaches of Iquiique are giant beaches and if you can go and get wet do not swim. Super recommended to be on this beach.
