Only beach I go to
Dec 2018
I spent half a day at this beach a year ago on New Years day. Arrived at 9 am and by noon the beach was crowded. Despite my dread of swimming in cold waters I did it anyway! It's a beautiful place backed by pine forest and protected on one by a yacht club and the other by large white island-like rock outcropping. I'd post a picture here but that isn't available. If it's beach you're looking for don't miss this one!

Awesome place!

Calm water perfect for kid, if you go in low season you will be alone in this half moon of beach, without much noise because to reach there you have to pass a little forest. Specially for a family trip!

You can enjoy a day walking beneath the big threes from the wood up of the beach to then go to it and relax in the sand and water.

Beautiful and special beach
Feb 2018 • Family
The place is very beautiful, the beach is small but the water have a beautiful color. The smell of the forest is very nice and gives you that feeling of being in the nature. You can take beautiful photos there. You can see also an amazing view of the sunset on the top of the hill where there is the forest.

Great if you are nearby
Jan 2018 • Family
If you are nearby Algarrobo in the summer this is a great little beach to spend a full day. Parking may be a problem; there are several parking areas that charge per hour (not too bad) but you could also park to the North East behind the woods and walk down to the beach via a small trail through the woods (see enclosed picture).

Expect the beach to be crowded.

The small bay protects the beach from big waves and the woods behing provide an area where you could rest from the sun if you want.

There are several small places where you can buy empanadas, drinks, ice cream, etc. at reasonable prices.

Good for small children.

From there you can hike to the Islote Pajaros Niños and/or Islote Peña blanca

Exceptional natural beauty formerly, woods extensively cut down to build beach developments. Still remains a charming cove.

A must in Algarrobo!!
Oct 2016 • Family
Such a lovely beach and worth visiting it. Although I mainly visited El Canelo beach, there are both close to eachother but separated by the Forest (this forest is a municipal park). There are little stores (kioskos) where you can buy food and the tradicional egg bread (pan de huevo) because now the recipe has changed and before, you used to find people selling it at the beach along with the 'Palmeras' (a sweet 'candy', if you can call it like that) but now it's hard to find it but in these two beaches you can so that's amazing! The price of the parking for the cars was $600 pesos chilenos every 30 minutes so it is expensive if you want to spend the whole day at the beach. You can do canopy here (among other activities) and you can explore the forest and obviously take pictures there because it is amazing. One tip: The entrance to these beaches is not difficult but it can be hard for an elderly person so you have to be careful with them so they don't fall because of the irregular path.
