  • One of the beaches nice and quiet to be able to swim. Worthwhile visit and even staying all day, this close to the casino, restaurants and pubs

  • Incredible Beach, one of the best in the North and Chile in general, has a large park where mixing yellow sand with grass and palm trees. There is a park with alligators and animals in the area. Beautiful waterfront surrounded by Palm trees by the sea.

  • Beach and palm trees, a beautiful walk along the waterfront, with a resemblance to Miami. We had a nice day for a walk.

Where to stay in Iquique

For dependable chain options, look for hotels located along the beachfront--a good area for anyone visiting Iquique to swim, surf, and paraglide. Hotels near the beach also tend to stay relatively expensive throughout the year, so if you're visiting on a budget, consider one of the city's many hostels. Rental apartments distributed across Iquique accommodate visitors looking for more privacy and space.
