Isla Damas, La Serena
(4.7/5 based on 500+ reviews on the web)
Combine sandy beaches with animal viewing at Isla Damas. Take a tour to the island and keep an eye out for dolphins, as they have been known to swim along with the boats. Once on the island, you can choose from a number of sandy beaches to visit. As a habitat for penguins, the attraction also plays home to many of the birds, which usually gather around the cliffs. Other animals commonly found here include cormorants, sea otters, and sea lions. See Isla Damas and all La Serena has to offer by arranging your trip with our La Serena vacation generator.

  • Damas island is protected by which visits can last for only an hour, at this time I recommend going to Beach the scissors, its waters are Turquoise, and you can see many flora and fauna along the way.

  • It really is a trip if you are in La Serena or close you should go, you can observe penguins, various birds, and especially dolphins close to the boats, and ecotourism makes it really excellent, 100% recommended.

  • We don't not expected to see as many animals. Seals, otters, penguins, dolphins, guanos and other bird species. We were 19 on the boat and the captain approached super close to the animals so we had the chance to see them well. A while :)
