Caleta Cóndor

Caleta Cóndor beach - Chile

Sitting at the mouth of the Río Cholguaco river in the Los Lagos region of Southern Chile is what is possibly the most stunning beach in the country. A crescent of bone white sand meets the turquoise waters of the Pacific Ocean, all backed by thick, lush forest. Caleta Cóndor certainly has the appearance of a paradisical tropical beach, however the temperature doesn't quite support this and it can be distinctly chilly(!) out of season. In fact the water temperature never reaches anything approaching tropical.

Caleta Cóndor is set in Territorio Mapa Lahual, a protected indigenous zone. This mountainous, forested region is home to some of the most remote (and beautiful) scenery in Chile. As a consequence it is something of a challenge to get to the beach which is great news as Caleta Cóndor remains unspoiled. Access is by a 2 hour boat trip from the tiny port of Bahía Mansa, which is itself something of a mission to get to.
