I've walked along coastlines in the northern Pacific, the southern Pacific and many sections in between. Several small homeless encampments, grafitti on rocks, and tired looking buildings mar this section of coast. Perhaps it looks different in the summer. I will say that the clouds and ocean were gorgeous and we saw some enormous pelicans on some cool rock outcroppings.

This is a very peaceful part of town and is a beautiful walk. We tried relaxing alongside it but had quite a few beggars harass us so we carried on. The views are lovely though

If you are a runner (I am), you will enjoy this course. You can start crossing the street in front of the "Reloj de flores" (playa Caleta Abarca) and you will be on the sign "7.5" painted in yellow no the floor. These signs are painted every 500 mts in both directions, until sign 10,0 (if you go to Valparaíso).... More

You can ride a bike all the way to Valparaiso from Reñaca enjoying a beautiful view and sites. Plenty of restaurants and places to visit. Summer days are crowded but spring and fall much more quiet and entertaining.

Six stories of Mall with a food court on the top floor with restaurants and fast food vendors of every kind. Almost everything you would desire to buy from groceries to the high end jewelry and clothes. Good place to spend time on rainy days. Free parking for cars and even with attendants to secure bicycles for free. Easy walking... More

What a beautiful view! There's a paved walkway that you can use to walk along the beach without getting your shoes filled up with sand. There are bars and restaurants along the way with plenty of benches for just sitting and enjoying the view. Underneath some of the restaurants, you'll see public restrooms which can be used for a small... More

The beach is quite clean compared to what we expected in Chile. Many folks use the paved road to stroll beside the beach. Dogs are in abundance in most of Chile but most of them are fed well even if they live on streets.
