Caleta Horcon, Valparaiso

(170+ reviews on the web)
Wildlife Area
Sometimes referred to as the "hippie hotspot" of the central coast, the sleepy town of Caleta Horcon gets its eclectic atmosphere from the local population of fishermen, artisans, and nudists. Tumbling paths lead toward the main cove, lined with rows of colorful fishing boats and artists who often set up shop on the beach selling an array of local crafts. Two other beaches sit nearby: one offers peaceful seclusion surrounded by rolling hills and the other is Chile's only official nudist beach, one hour's walk north from the main beach. Use our Valparaiso vacation trip planner to visit Caleta Horcon on your trip to Valparaiso, and learn what else travelers and our writers recommend seeing nearby.
