Surrounded by palm trees and sheltered from the wind, Playa Cavancha is lapped by mild seawater suitable for swimming throughout the year, while its big waves provide opportunities for water sports. Play volleyball on the white sand, hop on a surfboard, or put on water skies and ride the waves. The area also boasts an aquarium and a pool hosting sea lion shows. Busy and popular with locals and tourists alike, the beach sits in the middle of a modern residential area with a coastal avenue and a public walkway.

  • This beach is located in the North of Chile, in the city of Iquique is a place that you can not miss if you are in these sides, its water is warm and completely transparent, perfect white sand has to take a little sun. At the edge of the beach will find bike paths, restaurants, with games for children, pubs, casinos, hotels and others. In playa Cavancha also performed a show for the whole family of sea lions, visit this beautiful beach in the North of Chile, will promise to return.

  • I'm not a reference point since I am in a tropical area. The beach is large, much space on the coast where people are really stacked to enjoy the beach... nearby services, including such of fresh water in the sand.
