Coast road

We recommend making the coastal road to Huasco, with a large number of incredible beaches, where we highlight, Chorrillos, Verde Vértigo, Playa Blanca and Playa La Virgen, further south is the National Park LLanos del Challe, where in the rainiest years you can enjoy theFlowery desert, a unique show in the world.


The best of Atacama are its beaches, and several companies offer tours to Playa La Virgen, where you have the option to take your snack or eat at the restaurant on the beach, the interesting thing about these tours is that they visit all the hidden beaches that only local guides know.
Another outstanding tour is Pan de Azucar, where they have the option of spending the whole day in the park and taking unforgettable postcards

Bahía Inglesa

Bahia Inglesa has a small artisan fair, beachside restaurants and kayak rentals, in summer it gets a bit saturated so we recommend booking well in advance, in the low season it is very romantic and quiet, in the high season there are plenty of parties and reels from the beach, you can also visit the Paleontological Museum with interesting samples of the Atacama coastal formation.
