Clean, attractive beach with lots of activities available. Restaurants and vars are quite overpriced however, recommend going to somewhere in nearby Caldera

Worth a visit but looks better on the photos than in reality. White sand and aqua coloured water. A few kiosks selling silver jewelry from the local gem stones. As we were on a tight budget found Caldera a cheaper place to stay.

We went there in the spring (October), and it was totally dead, even on a Friday! Some restaurants were open, but all hostels were closed. Therefore there is nothing to do. I really don't recommend it outside the high season.

Tiny beach definitely worth visiting. We went from copiapo to caldera with a bus which departed from the buss terminal next to the Lider (supermarket) for 3.500 CLP. From Caldera we took a collectivo to 1.000 CLP to Bahia Inglesa.

Just down the road from Caldera is this gorgeous beach with its white sands and turquoise waters. This is the South Pacific so the water is COLD. Too cold for us to dip in in early April but several brave souls did! Amongst the sand...More

It's a small town, the main street is on the beach and has nice restaurants. Unfortunately there is litter in the water and it's very cold.

We visited here for the day, the beach is beautiful and popular. There is restaurants and shops on the beach front to get drinks and to eat. We visited by private taxi for 35 chilean pesos 1 way from Copiapo
