  • The extent of this Avenue and beach is really the best sunsets can be seen, it is next to the city so it is a must in your visit to la serena.

  • Cute way to rest but the beaches are not hygienic. Listen to pull waste there and that the bathroom is not recommended

  • The avenida del Mar in La Serena is one of those places that remain in the memory of many. Always fresh, suitable for walking, cycling and to make physical activity, offers spacious, quiet and offers for sport. The sunset is lovely and restaurants offer is very varied and for everyone, even those who only seek a fried pie or eat churros. A pity that you have not enabled any parallel Avenue, which reduce the heavy vehicular traffic.
