“Lunch at the beach”
Reviewed March 6, 2013

Had good lunch on the beach on our first day. Food was good. It was nice to look at the ocean after traveling for 24 hours.

“Crowded in February”
Reviewed February 26, 2013

Avenida del Mar is the beachfront road in La Serena. Like most beachfront roads, it has hotels, condos, restaurants, and is jammed with traffic during the high season (I was there in February). The beach is very nice, but nothing out of the ordinary. Overall, it is a good place, but there are many more unique things to do in that part of Chile.

“Great beach”
Reviewed February 5, 2013

This is a very popular beach with families and groups of teenagers. Good sand, clean beach, great views around the bay, various bars/restaurants but not continuous. If you want to park along the front arrive before 11am. Good flat promenade walk for miles. Police ride along in shorts on bicycles, joining in the mood.

“a nice walk”
Reviewed November 6, 2011

Nice, if you're walking in the restaurant area. There are not as many restaurants as the guide books make it seem there are.
