Came here for sunset after dinner in Vina Del Mar, totally worth it. Took an uber across town to the supermarket across the street and hiked up to watch the sunset. Totally worth it and SUPER easy!

The views from this place are spectacular.It is amazing to see this type of scenery so close to the coast.It is very hard to get to the top to get the best view cause the sand is not compact in most of the places.Also there isn't any signs as to guide you through the best way.Just make sure to wear the correct shoes.I ended up with tons of sand in my sneakers cause your feet sink in the sand as you're walking. Also protect your eyes.It was very windy and sand gets in your eyes, nose and mouth.If you can get to a good point on the top the view is spectacular!

This is a must see if your are in the Vina del Mar area as the dunes of Concon are definitely worth an afternoon visit. As you approach the area, you cannot miss the dunes, and sand even slides onto the roads nearby (zero danger). While on the hill, you can rent boards to “toboggan” or “surf” down the sand hill. The views are amazing and we saw some dolphins!

If you want a really good workout, climb the dunes. Other than the fact that the dunes are unique, there really isn't much of an attraction. Not a developed or maintained recreation area. Rental of badly beat up sand surf boards is an option but don't expect to go surfing to the bottom. Good for a days fun in the sand without being on the beach.

I have lived in Chile a very long time and we have continually hiked the dunes, they are amazing, they are a wonder. Unfortunately, people keep dumping trash and partying on the dunes, there are no signs or laws enforcing cleaning up trash. The keep building on this beautiful space and it's a damn shame.

I was renting an apartment nearby and these dunes are lovely. Really odd as they are in the middle of a built up area. I wouldn't go during the heat of the day but sunset is nice.

Very cheap (3000 for 1 hour) this was super fun and a great way to spend some time. Bring socks o wear sneakers as the sand is very hot! Super nice view of the coast and the city, great pictures and long sandbaording runs. you do have to walk back up so you get a workout in as well!

Just north of Valpo & Vina del Mar, the dunes of Concon are worth a visit. You can simply walk up and take in the ocean/city views or you can rent a cheap "sandboard".
Free to visit, fairly steep, but soft sands and quite vast. Be warned: sand gets VERY HOT in summer months!

We drove to the area found parking outside a shopping mall along the road and walked to the base of the hill (east side). A vender was renting a number of boards and wax for $1000 CLP/ hour (about $1.50). The right board made all the difference...choose wisely. The hike up was the most difficult as the sand on this side of the dune is baked in sun and was REALLY hot on the feet. Bring the proper foot wear. Flipflops are not appropriate! Once at the top there was a good view south of Viña Del Mar and Valpairaíso. If you don't board be prepared anyway for sand in the face, eyes, and clothes. If you do board, use plenty of wax and go straight down as it's near impossible to carve. Surprisingly some of our better boarders were first timers (even for snow or water) My daughter showed up my son-in-law who boasted of his snowboarding prowes but failed to deliver even one good run down. Just relax and put your weight back and go for it. The drones we had with us made capturing the morning activity more memorable. They all wanted to do it again some day.

We heard about the Dunes so had to go see them and perhaps Snow board down. There are some rentals at the base, just guys hanging out. What we did not know was there is BLACK sand mixed in and the sand is beyond HOT. It was not a hot day. We were in Flip Flops and it was struggle to get to the top. It was painful. The view was cool. I suspect the Dunes won't be around in 10 years as they don't generate revenue and all the new construction will continue to eat into them. Definitely a must do, in tennis shoes or boots.
