La Virgen Beach
Playa La virgen is a beach of intense turquoise waters, unique on the Chilean coast with this characteristic in such a striking tone. This, coupled with its fine white sand and calm waves, are the main reasons to position it among the best and most beautiful beaches in Chile.

Playa la Virgen is encased among rocks and, although it does not have many kilometers long, it has everything it takes to spend a pleasant stay.
The Tourist Center Playa La Virgen offers the traveler baths and showers throughout the day, and also beautiful cabins or camping area where the visitor can stay and enjoy an excellent vacation.

Totoralillo is perhaps, the beach with the strangest form of Chile. The peninsula that enters the Pacific divides it into three: on the right, the stony part, is the Totorillo Surf School.
On the left, there is the part where almost all people settle in summer, just in front of the parking lots. And in the middle, on the peninsula itself, the beautiful beach of transparent waters that forms in front of the Tiki Tano cabins.
Totoralillo is reached by a hidden detour from the 5 North, after passing through a desert road that seems to lead to a peladero, but that actually leads to one of the most beautiful beaches in Chile, with stripes of celestial water and fine sand .
Although it looks clean and with more services (there are lifeguards and even a fair in the fisherman's cove), in summer visitors monopolize almost the entire surface of sand. One of the best accommodation options is Tiki Tano, with romantic cabins and a Tahitian-style restaurant, with dishes such as Tikitano cebiche, with ginger and coconut milk.
