Renaca, Vina del Mar

4.1
#1 of 46 in Outdoors in Valparaiso Region
Once a quiet, removed beach, Renaca has been incorporated into Viña del Mar thanks to the tourist city's increasing urban sprawl. Now a buzzing hub for sun-worshippers, the beach offers excellent facilities, plenty of places to grab a meal or a drink, and an energetic atmosphere. Expect fairly large crowds during summer, as locals and tourists alike flock to the scenic attraction. Check with locals before swimming: the surf can be quite dangerous in certain conditions.

    It is a very nice town. Clean and with very friendly people. Locals close early, type 21 hs. Beautiful sunsets. The only thing not so good is that you can not put to sea since the waves are violent. There is a surf school. Bars on the beach.

    Walk on the edge is the best way to admire the Pacific. Even on cold days you can stroll and admire the scenery. Worth a lot!

    Extensive and pleasant beach. Great place for a stroll along the shore. But beware! Walk through the pedestrian mall--the Pacific Ocean can surprise you with its icy waters. I saw several tourists who have ventured to take pictures with his back to the sea come out with wet feet and congelados...rs
