The city beach of Playa Reñaca is a place for fun. It has fantastic parties, crowds, and a lot of fun activities. This is a tourist hot spot in the north of Chile, and lives up to its other name of “Long beach”, being a long stretch of fine golden sand. In fact the beach is divided into six sectors, all with soft sand and warm waters.

The backdrop to the beach is a hillside covered in apartments and other buildings. You will also find a bustling promenade with market stalls, shops, and ice cream. There are also plenty of cafes, and it is the place to be seen. This popular spot is a lot of fun if you like crowds, which makes it a great place for people watching.

Even though it has a built up city setting Playa Reñaca is still a beautiful beach retaining plenty of natural charm. For example you can find sea lions there sunning on the rocks. It is also a place where you will have no trouble finding restaurants, accommodations, and activities at this beach. It has been one of the liveliest spots in town for years, and people love to have a good time here.
