Caleta Portales, Valparaiso

(3.8/5 based on 170+ reviews on the web)
A small cove with a big seafood culture, Caleta Portales serves as the home to many fisherman, catching and selling fresh produce daily. Find the markets just by the ocean where fisherman line their old and colourful boats side by side selling their daily catch. If you don't feel like cooking your own, try one of the many tasty restaurants that exist in the adjacent towns. Stroll down the seaside boulevard or pier and keep an eye out for seals, as they hang around the shore and will be extra friendly if you have fish. Plan your Caleta Portales visit and explore what else you can see and do in Valparaiso using our Valparaiso travel itinerary planner.

  • In the morning, seen how the small fishing boats and fishermen from the sea hauled to drag u to the market. The sale will start immediately. In small huts the fish are filleted u for the customers desire disassembled. The remains are thrown to the sea lions, seagulls u pelicans feed. A gloriously colourful bustle, yet non-touristy slaughtered. We were there for almost 3 hours. Photo motives without end.
