Playa Cavancha, Iquique

4.4
#1 of 8 in Outdoors in Iquique
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. Inspirock's itinerary builder makes planning a Iquique trip simple and quick.

  • Even if you have too many street vendors the beach is very nice. Very accessible Beach services.

  • Beautiful, wide beach. There are areas without waves and others with more intense waves suitable for expert swimmers. In summer it is full of street vendors yell, selling everything from potatoes stuffed Colombian, sushi, pies, boiled eggs, corn with cheese (not typical of chile), rolls, mojito (illegal), ice cream to pizza. That is the only aspect of the detestable. The beach itself is beautiful, I would say that it is one of the best in Chile. The water is not very cold, it is well tolerated.

  • I think it is the best that has Iquique... its beach is wonderful... I saw many jellyfish but I can imagine that it responds to a condition of the season. Several activities around Central magnificent from the beach. Ideal to go with the family.
