Bahía Inglesa

If you are looking for quiet beaches, white sands and turquoise pools to relax in, this is your place.
Bring your kitesurfing equipment; its warm winds and temperatures make it an ideal place to enjoy water sports.

For land activities fans there are also unmissable sites. Rent a jeep or ride a bicycle through the explosion of colors in the blooming desert during the spring, a climate event that floods the arid dunes with flowers. A miracle of nature lauded worldwide.

Explore the charms Bahía Inglesa

  • La Virgen Beach

    Located south from Bahía Inglesa, it is known as one of the best beaches in the country. Dive into its turquoise waters and get a tan on its fine white sand.

    You can find camping spots and some cottages with an amazing ocean view. In the summer remember to book ahead as this is a hotspot.

  • Caldera

    Just a few kilometers from Bahía Inglesa, this town offers a good cultural scene to complement the area’s beach activities.

    Visit the museum of the first train station in Chile or get to know the traditions of the locals who every year, by late July, celebrate the festival of San Pedro. During the celebration, the city is filled with song, dancing and floats that go around the beautiful San Vicente de Paul Church, built in 1862.

  • San Félix

    In the heart of the Huasco Valley you’ll be amazed by the remains of pre-hispanic cultures that attest to the existence of Inca settlements in the territory.

    You can trek around the sandy and rocky paths surrounded by vegetation. If the outdoors is your thing, there are camping areas where you can be properly immersed in nature.

  • Alto del Carmen

    Old traditions and agriculture are the focal point of life for people from Alto del Carmen, who give travelers a warm welcome. See for yourself their agricultural work, mainly the pisco-producing vines that give the valley its famous product: pisco.

    Walk along the Españoles Valley, trek its paths and try out the local food. The typical buildings of the area, their wooden structures covered in tar and mud, and the totora roofs will captivate you.

  • Ojos del Salado Volcano

    Don’t miss out on the opportunity of feeling you can touch the sky with your hands. Visit the world’s highest volcano and be amazed by its 6,000 meters. Test your abilities and go mountaineering as they guarantee that this is the best place in the world to do so.

    Get on a bike or put on some comfortable boots to walk along the paths of the Nevado Tres Cruces National Park. Here, you’ll find salt flats and cushion bogs, as well as natural wonders like the turquoise waters of Verde Lagoon and, a bit further south, hot springs.

  • Saltpeter Offices

    Learn about the nitrate history, its relevance in northern Chile and the nearly 200 towns that operated during the late XIX century. Small towns that gave life to the inhospitable Atacama Desert that today can be visited via specialized tours. Visit train museums, cemeteries and industrial zones, as well as archaeological sites. Visit the Chacabuco, Pedro de Valdivia and María Elena mines. Cultural centers or historical museums that currently give life to these amazing sites that were true protagonists of the history of our country.
