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.

  • Beautiful beach from Monday to Thursday (Friday-Sunday best is go to the baths or not leave). Super expeditious, safe, bathrooms (to charge the cellular). Worried life. So bad the excess of excesses of street vendors. Are tedious. And so count in the star of Iquique (2 of geb 2017), the local newspaper, came the news of larvae in food from the street and lot of closures.
