Beaches in Araucanía
It may be frustrating at times visiting some of the most beautiful beaches in the world but then dipping a toe in the sea and feeling the freezing water, but that is the story at most of Chile's beaches. Enjoy the sunbathing or take a wetsuit!!
The water does get warmer north of La Serena. Surfers are increasingly attracted to breaks along Chile's extended coastline, including Pichilemu, Buchupureo and Iquique.
