Beach
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. Take a look at our Iquique vacation builder to schedule your visit to Playa Cavancha and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.
