An awesome, sandy, crescent beach. Drive onto the sand or camp above it on the north end. The south end of the beach has picnic tables and grills near the village. The north end is just beach. There are garbage cans and I saw a sign for banos in the village, but we did not use them. No facilities. There was noone else here and the town was pretty dead, except for some fishermen, while we were here. Free. This is the cleanest beach we have seen so far heading south from Peru.

Wonderful quiet place. We did not park on the beach, but next to the road. Nobody bothered, waking up with sealions playing in the seaReport Check-In
No-one will annoy you during the winter.
Village of fisherman, you can buy fishes or other king of food to the people.
Beautiful. I liked to stay a bit more to the north, closer to the rocks and the other iOverlander spot nearby, you can back up between two big rocks and be mostly hidden. Felt more private and wild here and the big rock hides you from the sun until about 10, so it doesn't get crazy hot too fast! :) Looking at the tracks, though, quite a few people seem to do that!Report Check-In
Nice cove with with palapas tables and barbecues. Sand can get soft here. Very quiet at night. Very clean beachReport Check-In
Great place! We got very stuck on the beach with 4x4. Needed help from 5 others to push it out. Very good food from the lady in the blue building. Also bought a parrot fish from a local fisherman. They come in around 1-2 PM by the pier.Report Check-In
It's wonderfull spot, we stayed here 3 days: 12 dolphins jumping, full moon, great sky stars, yellow montain, beach, white sand, fresh fishes in the small village! In the weekend, just some local people with loud sound. Don't forget the shoes out at night because the dogs take them. Enjoy!!!Report Check-In
A really nice beach, but anything but deserted during the school holidays. Like any other public place that is easily accessible, there where many families during this time of the year.Report Check-In
I didn't see the river but was able to get water from a local. The beach is clean and the sunset is amazing. The town is very quiet. The local told me that there are just about 3 families here and the rest fisherman living solo.Report Check-In
Beautiful, quiet, deserted beach! There was nobody else here but us. We drove on the B-900 highway until we reached the beach, then drove onto the sand when the unpaved road led towards the military base. The area was fairly clean with a trash bin available. There were two toilets in a shack but they were out of order and filthy. A few cars drove on the highway at night, and one even briefly parked near us in the middle of the night before taking off. A couple stray dogs played around our car late at night but didn't stick around for too long. The village of Cifuncho was visible from where we camped but we did not go there. A handful of fishermen were active early morning but too far away to be distruptive. Definitely a good place for camping and stargazing!Report Check-In
We stayed here at the North end of the Beach and were able to camp next to a wonderful Chilean family that feed us a great a lunch on our way out town. The small village on the south end has a restaurant and water if you ask nicely. We would stay here a again.Report Check-In
We LOVED this place! Quiet, beautiful and reasonably clean. Talked to locals and asked for sea food. They brought a lot of "Piure", "Picorocos" and mussels for CLP$7.000. Stayed 3 nights.Report Check-In
