  • Only the local driver can take you here. Forget about you driving yourself there. The beach is in a cove. Rocky. Nothing exciting.  more »

  • This is about a 9hr drive down from Santiago, I brought the Packraft out not really knowing what to expect. This is a massive lake (with equally massive lakes nearby) all with exceptionally clear blue waters. This was an amazing paddle and the water to extremely clam while I was there. I was able to fly the drone and get spectacular views of surrounding mountains and Volcanoes. This is absolutely a favorite spot for the locals and can get pretty packed, however the beaches are pretty clean. You are able to rent jet skis and kayak as well. There are a series of small gift shops/snacks shacks and pay as you go bathrooms (300CLP). We got here early and were able to beat the rush and find more secluded parking a bit further down the road under a shade tree(car camping) Although there’s not camping on the beach, there are two spots we found on iOverlander that worked for us for a night. If you enjoy swimming and sunbathing while taking in incredible views and down mind a small crowed I’d definitely recommend this. If your looking to get further out on the water it makes it that much butter! 🚣‍♂️ IG: adventureoveramenities_
