The coast line is very well maintained with a wide sandy beach, paved walking promenade and separate bike lanes. All along the way there are playgrounds for the kids, stations with outdoor exercise equipment and many kiosks for ice cream and snacks, and some that serve meals. We walked in the sunshine with the roar of the waves crashing -... More

Renaca is a gorgeous little 'in between' sort of city... I lived in Vina del Mar and worked in ConCon. Always found Renaca a pleasure to drive through, and on the few occasions my friends and I stopped to hang out it was very clean and bright, full of life and color. Only downside is that Renaca is a bit... More

This is one of the most visited beaches in Chile. Dec-Jan-Feb are high season, so be prepared for big crowds. Rest of the year is just a nice long beach with lots of small restaurants and some shops. Ideal for running or biking.

We visited this place around 3 pm on 20/3/2015 and the place was not crowded. Our final stop looking at the seals and birds was not that great! But the view of multi level apartments built on the full slope of the hill facing the sea was amazing! Wish, I had an apartment there facing the sea all the time!

My mother would take me to Chile as a child to visit my family, its beautiful. The people are so friendly and the marisco (sea food) restaurants are the best in the WORLD

I was there together with my son and uncle in mid December so the weather wasn't exceptional. It was very windy but well worth the cheap bus trip from Valparaiso.

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.
