Isla Damas, La Serena
(4.7/5 based on 550+ 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.

  • The island is wonderful, take the full tour (Punta Choros), the boat trip is exciting, they leave you unfortunately only be an hour on the island and not reach to walk whole, a single trail takes you 45 minutes, there is another 30 minutes and the shorter than 20 minutes, I had to make the more friendly since it was wrong of the leg so that only come to the viewpoint that there is half way, the view is beautiful, ideal for views! The island is administered by Conaf and Rangers were very kind and shows that they are very concerned about keeping in good condition that beautiful place.
