Chile’s coastline is 6,500 km long, which makes it the country with one of the biggest coastal borders in the world. Choosing a Chilean beach to visit is a complex task, since all along the territory you can be surprised with the mystery and beauty that each one of them hides.
Here are 3 unmissable beaches to consider when planning your trip to Chile:
- La Virgen Beach
Located in the Atacama region, 70 km west from the city of Copiapó, La Virgen is known for its white sands and turquoise waters, which has earned it the name of the “Chilean Caribbean”.
Due to its location in the north of the country, the water at La Virgen is not so cold like in the beaches of Central Chile, and it is considered one of Chilean and foreigner’s favorite beaches.
1.3 km of coastline make Reñaca one of the most visited beaches in the region of Valparaíso.
Due to its abundance of waves, Reñana is an ideal landscape for surfers; however, it also offers areas that are perfect for those interested in fishing. The beach’s warm sands and its crystalline waters are some of the main attractions for tourists who visit it, along with the night life around the area, which is full of restaurants, clubs, bars and cafes.
- Ramuntcho Beach
Located in the Bío Bío region, this beach of green and turquoise shades invites its visitors to take a walk to get there, which combines the coastal landscape with native forests, transforming Ramuntcho into a Nature Sanctuary.
This beautiful beach is part of the Hualpén Peninsula. Its small size, with its green waters, soft sand and its lack of big waves make it a perfect place to relax and disconnect surrounded by nature.
