Bealtiful and crowded

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'.

Reñaca has a small downtown, where there is not much to do in there. The beaches are nice even though the water is so cold, you cannot stay more than half an hour because you start to feel your legs freezing. The nightclubs are far away from Reñaca.

WOW, pretty nice uncrowded beach, located very close to Vina. Good parking, several resturants within walking distance, several cheap hotels also.

I was quite disappointed with the city, and this seaside is no different -- lots of homeless dogs, garbage everywhere. Definitely not the worse in town, but can't recommend.

We were here one afternoon with some chilean friends, it was explained to us that rich chileans come and buy apartments as weekend places to have to get out of santiago, great place very clean and a couple of med-to-expensive restaurant around. Nice seagulls around and pelicans can be viewed on the beach.

If you like to wander around small tourist towns and visit tourist market stalls, MacDonalds, Burger King and the like then this is the place for you. It does have a nice beach though.
