The main beach of Iquique is very well maintained and well equipped. It's a paradise and makes for a perfect holiday in this perennially sunny city. Wide beach...warm waters...great atmosphere. It's nice to take a walk around the waterfront. It looks a bit empty because it was "winter" here, so it was a bit cloudy but the temperature was still good and the sun was out.
Caleta is situated opposite Dichato, a municipality of Tomé, Bio Bio region. Its landscape is very picturesque, the fishermen live with the families that have their weekend or summer homes here. On top of the hill is the Grotto of the Virgin, a pilgrimage location, the sacrifice to reach it is fully rewarded by the beautiful landscape you can admire once there.
It is one of only 3 beaches on the island and what resembles the beaches of Polynesia the most. The water is clear, calm, and warm. It is the ideal place to spend a tranquil time before continuing with tours. By the way, don´t forget to take the photo of the moai background tending at sea. It's amazing.
It is common for those who are immersed in the urban core to have a desire to leave the city, and go to a place where there is only the landscape and we the landscape and them are the protagonists. Sometimes we find it hard to find places that are free from urban labels, but there are exceptions, like this beach is in the area of Hualpen. Ramuntcho still is in its natural state, without services or homes close by, and it is only the landscape and visitors, which are crowded in summer, but spends much of the year as a lonely beach. Part of its mystery is that it does not have connectivity to allow easy access, so far there are no signs to guide you there, so having a bit of curiosity and excitement is natural. The easiest and fastest way to arrive is by car or cycling. From Conception it is around 25 minutes drive on a dirt road ... the secret is in taking the path towards the mouth, though bound to the Caleta Chome which you may find signs to on the road, but for just in case you must always take the right hand on every detour from the main road, after you reach a forest you will see a gate closed. Now leave the car parked at a bank and a fee of outdoor shows, and you should also go down a path to the right in the same sense that we come to start a walk of 10 minutes about finally reaching the expected corner, a semicircular beach ... beach Ramuntcho. This area bears some charm apart from being disconnected from urbanization, the geographical characteristics make it one of the most beautiful in the region. Fine white sand, clean, soft waves, natural setting with rocks, cliffs and abundant wildlife. Being surrounded by hills provides shade in the afternoons, located one hour early to sunbathe and enjoy every corner, fully recommended for those who enjoy photography, peaceful places or embedded in practice some sport.
What a surprise we got when we arrived to Punta Arenas! It´s historic center is very unbelievably unique. The first thing you´ll wonder is how that architecture can exist in a place that is so far down south. You have to visit this southernmost city of Chile because it´s incredible and amazing. If you go to Argentina, you MUST cross the Strait of Magellan which is another amazing area. Punta Arenas offers a place full of culture tucked up in the most southernmost part of the South American continent.
Bahia Inglesa is in northern Chile's Atacama Desert. It's hot all year so you can got any time. This very close to Caldera and Copiapo. If you go in spring there are not many tourists and you can enjoy the Flowering Desert. In late September the area is full of colors with different types of flowers. Charm to me ....
Caleta stands out as gastronomical area in the conception province. There are more than 25 bars and restaurants that specialize in seafood dishes. A beautiful place and within the reach of every pocket.
Caldera is a port with more than 45 beautiful beaches and not all of them are for swimming or fishing. Some of the most famous ones are unspoiled beaches like the English Bay, Bahia Salada, the Gringo, Barranquilla, White Beach, agate, Puerto Viejo, Salinas, the swan, Chorrillo, the Machas, Loreto, Ramada, Rdilllo, Slipper etc..

The sea is one of my favorite places because it relaxes me quite a lot and helps to clear my mind to think about myself, about my problems but somethingmore important is that it inspires me too. At sea, on the beach any picture works well for me, a cloudy day and the sea is a very spectacular background for a beautiful photograph that expresses all my feelings.
Zapallar is a village which is now a summer resort, popular with the Chilean upper class. For this reason, it is very expensive, but it is worth taking a look because of its stunning scenery and turquoise waters. We took a bus near the port of Valparaiso, they run every 40 minutes. Zapallar is 80 miles away from Valparaiso. It has a very beautiful coastal road, ideal for drinking mate on large rocks, watching the birds go by.
It's one of the most visited resorts in the area. It's a very nice temperature in the summer and it has a long beach. The water is a bit cold but for a bit of sunbathing it's okay. You can also do various water sports or take a boat ride to nearby beaches for a small fee.
This beach is located in a highly touristic coastal area. The sands here are grayier color than the surounding beaches. The waterfront is very attractive and has a rich architectural history with old houses and a rocky landscape.
This beach, with soft white sand and calm blue sea, is 30 minutes from the city. It has beautiful sandstone formations from wind erosion. You can watch beautiful sunsets which turn the water orange and violet and contrast with the driest desert in the world. You can fish, windsurf, dive and do other water sports. It's an ideal place to relieve stress, and relax within nature with its million year-old cliffs. The climate is nice and is suitable for swimming and water sports. The cliffs change colour at sunset and sunrise, and the wind and sea erosion has created picturesque and fanciful shapes.
From Papudo towards the south, the beaches are connected by good roads, it's the best way to get to know and travel along the coast of Chile. Separated by no more than 40 minutes, you'll see some very beautiful places, if you like photography, or surfing and all water sports. There are great hotels of the highest standard, restaurants and places to eat on the shores of the beaches. Further to the south are the beaches of Caleta Horcón and Quintero Bay.
One of the best beaches in Chile ... A great experience, I have returned back from my holiday, I was there last week, a well maintained beach, clean, but above all a great atmosphere ... I recommend it anyway, for going with friends and spending a few spectular days.
This small town called Curanipe gave me one of the most relaxed vacations that I've ever had in my short life. It was full of wonders, its beaches were very quiet, the people were very friendly and sociable, overall, it was WONDERFUL.
