This is a very beautiful beach. The ocean is picturesque. It is very wide with lots of visitors. The sun is great. The water is cool. It is a great place to walk along the water. The sunsets are spectacular.

Cavancha has a lot of space so it didn’t feel too crowded, even at peak times. Lots of rentals available and plenty of vendors along the beach.

Loved this beach! Water is cold and waves are strong for inexperienced swimmers (ideal for body surfing). Sunsets are amazing. Great for a romantic walk.

Was too cold for swimming in July. Bodyboarders looked to be catching some good waves. Seemed safe with nice boardwalks and lighting at night. Beach was average but a nice reprieve from cities in general.

a lovely beach with lots of buzz, fantastic to take in during the early hours of the morning when there are only a handful of people. Be sure to take a stroll here and spend some time before you leave Iquique.

The dominant standout part of Iquique. During the day it's a bit too hot but from 5pm on it's a lovely beach area where everybody seems to visit. I liked to walk along the beachfront around sunset and watch the sun, people watch and catch...More
