Caleta Horcon, Valparaiso

3.5
#2 of 7 in Wildlife in Valparaiso Region
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.

    Cute place, a little small, but it is very cute and quaint. I recommend for lunch anchored restaurant which is the only one which has a balcony with sea view outdoor, food is delicious and very fresh. Very good attention.

    I was much of child with my parents to buy fresh produce from the sea to this Cove. Then gaciamos a walk and a picnic on the beaches that surround it. All of this still exists, but is surrounded by enormous residential buildings that take away privacy and independence. But, this is the price of progress. However it is still a place that is worth much the worth visiting and has good restaurants.
