“Great beach with lots of food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2013

In General, I am not a huge beach person, but I happily spent an entire day here. The street vendors are endless, selling everything from ceviche to baked goods, fruit salad to homemade potato chips. The waves are big and the water is cold, but this is Chile, and it is expected.
I would highly recommend spending at least a few hours here.

“A lot of fun.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 15, 2013

Great beach - big, clean and beautiful. Don't worry about food too much as there's always a vendor wandering by with freshly baked goods, ceviche, beers etc. Do be careful of sea though - despite the lifeguards, it gets deep quickly and the waves are big!!

Pleasant beach, great for sun bathing. It's the only beach that is suitable and safe for swimming or surfing.
