Summer may be over and it's probably too cold to sit or swim at the beach, but despair not. Playa Portales still makes for a great walk in the evenings (just remember to dress warmly). Valparaiso and Vina del Mar are blessed with beautiful sunsets, even when the skies are somewhat cloudy. We had a great time posing for photos on the beach against the backdrop of a flaming mauve and orange sky at sunset, having tea in the World's Slowest Train Museum (a disused train sitting on the tracks by the beach), watching sea lions bask in the evening glow. You can get to the beach by hopping on the Valpo metro and alighting at the Playa Natales stop.

With time in your hand you should walk, otherwise at least drive down the road and this is simply breathtaking! Studded with little unknown gems - eateries and curio shops this walk is specially enjoyable in the evening when the sun melts don on the western horizon. But the evenings can get windy and nippy so be insulated.

Unfortunately I didn't get a chance to go in the water, but I loved walking through Costanera with my friends during our quick visit to Viña del Mar.

Such a long and lovely place next to Ocean. A relaxing journey either walk or drive. Remarkable view, great sunset and surprises from animals. Try local eateries and restaurants around, they are really savory.
