This rock formation is more than great! It is 42 meters tall and 70 wide; so it is huge.... but you get to see it from far; still it is worth it! You should definitely visit the museum next to it so they explain you everything about it; you will fall in love... so many secrets!

Nothing to see, just a view of the big rock with a hole in the middle, you can't go down to the beach, the stairs are blocked. You can get there by taxi, 15 min from downtown, it will cost you something around 15-20 bucks.

This is a good couple of hours to walk through the museum, take some pictures, watch the birds and the waves and have a drink at the small concession. Especially nice at sunset. Very close to the airport so if you have a layover, take a taxi here and relax with the views.

The place is just beautiful. Even when you can't descend (stairs are broken) the view is worthy the small trip.

Amazing view of the ocean, the restaurant and museum are quite nice. If you have to wait couple hours at the airport, best option is to take a taxi, visit this place, drink couple pisco sours and eat at La Portada Restaurant. The lookout is quite impressive, to watch the deep ocean, desert shore and off course La Portada natural... More

It´s a must to take a picture with the Portada beside you, after you can eat some sea food plates at the restorant, Try the mix ceviche and local Pisco Sour.

This amazing view is good for 30 min or so, because you can walk around a bit. You couldn'r descend to the beach while we were there, but there were footprints, so there must be a way down somewhere. The guy painting the rails at the restaurant said there was a dangerous way down on the other side. The restautrant... More

If you go to Antofagasta - or even have a short stop-over at airport - its worth of visiting La Portada and to take a photo! Pacific Ocean and La Portada - always in my mind. One day a tsunami will break it down; and then its too late to see it anymore.

Hi guys, one of me favorite places in Chile is Antofagasta because is the gate to other places and I love the fact you are between sea and desert. La Portada in particular has this beautiful energy about this place, the whether in Antofagasta is always great because it never rains so you can go anytime, any day to see... More
