Beautiful Vina Del Mar

This is a beautiful stretch of beach on the Chilean Coast. Wide sands and surf. There also were vendors who setup tents and sold trinkets for cheap. Would return.

It was nice to see but would not go out of my way to check it out. I can say I saw it but once I was there didn't really want to deal with the hassle of parking.

If your breakfast started after 10 a.m., Reñaca is the perfect spot for a late-afternoon lunch break. There are plenty of restaurants lining the beach promenade and another handful of options in the area, ranging from sushi to pizza. You may need to wear a scarf for the evening seabreeze.

The beach was beautiful and there is plenty of room to station your things at even when it is packed. The water is rough and a bit cold but understandable considering it is the pacific coast. There are plenty of people on the beach selling fresh fruit, drinks and typical Chilean snacks but they don't bother you. There are also... More

A very beautiful beach and crowded. We had difficult to park our car. The water temperature is very low, you can't stand to much time inside the water.

Beautiful coastal town...lovely to walk around and great food and local places...the water is way too cold for me, so I rarely went to the beach but did walk around and it was wonderful every time when the weather was nice...

Lovely sandy beach and cold water was perfect for a Tuesday afternoon. Take any micro to Reñaca from Plaza de Armas, very quiet spot for reading, relaxing and sitting around. Lots of nice areas to eat and drink.

Beautiful beach very close to Viña del Mar, easy to get by bus or car. It isn't a Caribbean beach, the water is cold, but very beautiful and relaxing. The views are amazing, and it's great to just sit on the sand. There are lots of restaurants close by, but I recommend eating 'empanadas'.
