Dramatic scenery on the coast with black sand and rocks jutting out of the sea, and where the sea meets the Bio Bio river. I also enjoyed visiting the quirky museum full of artefacts brought back by Pedro del Rio from his voyages around the world in the late 19th century.

Beautiful landscapes like a (pirate) cave, beaches, endemic fauna and flora, a cave, and a museum are part of this private reservation.

This is my favorite place to go in the area. Beautiful black sand beach with a rocky sea. It is fun to walk around and explore. Not a great place to swim but I rarely get in the water anywhere around here as it is always cold. Waves always seem big too. Maybe good for surfing. I have been many... More

It is such a mystic and wonderful place with low attendance, a lot of space and wild nature. I real paradise for calming down and enjoying a fantastic scenery. There is no infrastructural equipment so if you wish to have a picknick there, you need to bring your own dishes and equipment (which is very charming). Horserides are possible.

My wife and I spent a full day at the museum and nearby beach. We started with a visit to the Museum. We took a cab to the location, which is a about 15 minutes from downtown (cab driver had no problems taking us and offered to pick us up on the afternoon too). The Museum is primarily a collection...

The park is a very interesting place to go to. There is a beach that you have to pay about $3.000 to go to and its not a beach for swimming in. However, the back of the beach is the river mouth that is a beautiful spot and has views of the parts of the city on the other side... More

We drove to the Museum - there is a fee to drive into the Park. The Museum is an interesting collection of what a world traveler around end of the 19th century might collect from different countries around the world, including your home country. There is no charge for visiting the musuem, backpacks are not allowed in the museum, and... More

Perfect place for an afternoon walk, and great location for the sunset over the pacific. We took a taxi from the city to the Museum, and payed $7000 Pesus. From the museum to the beach is like 3 km, but it's also very easy to get a ride with some of the locals - Everybody is nice a helpfull!
