MAIN ATTRACTIVES
BAHÍA CISNE

Bahía Cisne is another of the main tourist attractions in the region. Located south of Bahía Inglesa, it has calm and warm waters ideal for swimming.


In addition to its spa conditions, Bahía Cisne is also an important refuge for penguins and other seabirds, located on the Big Island of the bay, which is a biological reserve area.

PLAYA EL MORRO

Ten kilometers south of Bahía Inglesa is Playa El Morros, crystal clear waters of peaceful tranquility.

Located on the shores of the third region, this little oasis boasts a great climate where visitors can easily enter, camp, and enjoy the entire desert landscape.

BAHÍA INGLESA

Bahía Inglesa is a small resort located a very short distance from the port of Caldera in the Third Region of Atacama.

It owes its name to the visit made by the English privateer Edward Davis on his Bachelor ship in 1687, becoming known as Puerto del Inglés.

It stands out for its white sands and its particularly crystalline waters, in addition to having all the necessary infrastructure to accommodate tourists and visitors. There are camping facilities, hotels, restaurants and summer houses.

Its very popular beaches are considered among the best in the country. Some of them are La Piscina, Las Machas, Blanca and El Chuncho. The place also enjoys a mild climate all year round.

CALDERA

Caldera is a Chilean commune and city, belonging to the Province of Copiapó, in the Atacama Region. It is a mining, fishing and aquaculture port, located 75 kilometers from the city of the regional capital, Copiapó. In addition to the above, Caldera is located in an area of ​​important tourist interest.

The city was founded on November 20, 1849, by Decree Law signed by the then President of the Republic Manuel Bulnes and the Minister of the Interior José Joaquín Pérez.

The creation of the port of Caldera was due to the construction of the first Chilean railway by the recently created Compañía de Ferrocarriles de Copiapó, as a result of the need to have a port of embarkation for the production of minerals that existed at that time, and that came from the Chañarcillo and Tres Puntas mines. That is why by Supreme Decree of September 21, 1850, the then small cove of Caldera became a port of real importance at the national level.

SANTUARIO DE LA NATURALEZA - GRANITO ORBICULAR

The Orbicular Granite Nature Sanctuary is a coastal area of ​​about 400 m2. It is located 11 km from Caldera, north of the extensive Rodillo beach, in the III Region of Atacama.

On the beach there is a geological outcrop made up of granite rocks with elliptical orbicles. The orbicular body has a granodioritic matrix, with a porphyritic texture. The orbicles are ellipsoidal, with an average diameter of 7 cm, and are composed of a doritic nucleus and a dark shell with a radial texture, composed of similar amounts of plagioclase and amphibole, with smaller amounts of clinopyroxene, biotite, and magnetite.

PARQUE NACIONAL PAN DE AZÚCAR

The Pan de Azúcar National Park is located in the coastal sector of the Antofagasta and Atacama regions, in the Antofagasta province, Taltal commune and the Chañaral province, in the commune of the same name. It was created on May 6, 1986.

The Park stands out for the protection of fauna species such as the guanaco, the Humboldt penguin and the yunco duck. As far as flora is concerned, it has an eminently xerophytic character. That is, species adapted to the lack of water. Cactaceae stand out, both columnar and globose.
