The coastal resort of Viña del Mar is home to a number of Chile's best beaches. Within easy reach of the capital, Santiago, Viña del Mar is a popular spot for weekends and the summer break when it really comes to life.

The weather in Viña del Mar is often described as Mediterranean, meaning it is generally warm and dry. However, this does not extend to the ocean which is afflicted by the Humboldt current with its icy water. So, whilst the air temperature may be in the 70s (20C+), the water temperature is unlikely to be much higher than the low 60s.

Reñaca, Las Salinas,Amarilla, Miramar and Casino beaches are the best known in the area. Of the bunch Reñaca is probably the most popular, and for good reason. With fine golden sand and fun waves this is a beach for everyone.

As well as having some great beaches, Vina is also Chile's fourth biggest city. Whilst the seasoned international traveller may find the town has little to offer there's always plenty of life on and around the beaches.
