Beautiful place in a beautiful city. There a marine park next to it where you can see sea lions taking sun bath on the rocks.

This place is kind of far if you walkt hrough all the coast of Viña, but if you stop every now and then, to rest and take some pictures, it's something you can do in a 4 hours walk, in a really slow pace.

Not much to do, but walking along the beach and enjoying an ice cream or coffee by the water is nice. Restaurants are pricier than in Vina del Mar and the food is the same caliber as many cheaper restaurants in Vina del Mar

Nice beach North of Valparaiso where we were staying. Pretty standard as far as beaches go, but we didn't find it too incredibly crowded and there are amazing views of Vina del Mar and Valparaiso from here.

Renaca is a great little coastal town. There are great cafes. This town gets pretty crowded during Summer months. It was wonderful sitting outside with a drink watching the ocean

Besides, the bathrooms are clean. We have breakfast and wifi all over the place. The hostel has got a swimming pool too, if you don´t want... More

Best spot at Viña del Mar I guess. I dont like the crazy nightlife style around but you can enjoy the beach and just forget that at the balconies. Beautiful pacific beach with big stones and special colors in the sky at the sunset. Extremely recommend if you go to Viña.

Renaca is a lovely, wide beach with wonderful views and great waves. Renaca beaches have rental umbrellas, lounge chairs, adequate parking, restrooms, and restaurants. There are nearby shops offering everything from clothing to souvenirs.
