Chile not only has the southernmost glaciers in the world, nor the coldest jungles ... this time we will talk about our beaches of the Pacific in the Region of Los Lagos, that although they are very unknown tourist, those who have been able to visit it remain Really impacted.
Totally unexplored, wild.
Photographer Jorge Iván León Cabello collaborated with GoChile. Totally impressed in front of their photographs, we stopped to investigate more of these wonderful beaches of the Region of Los Lagos. But we do not get very far, since on the internet we hardly find information. We made some calls and were able to contact with locals who offer us a more complete alternative.
Estaquilla, Huar Huar and Llico Bajo, are some of the wild and almost uninhabited beaches of the Los Lagos Region. To reach them is already an adventure: dirt roads, fallen trees ... millennial forests and many closed curves zigzagging the mountain range of the Coast.
An infinite sea carried by the waves that reach the coast. We could talk about certain currents of water that form a restless peaceful that lies at the foot of mountains, ravines and cliffs that you will hardly find elsewhere in Chile.
The landscape is touching...
Here you can see penguins throughout the year in the alleys of Estaquilla and very near the coast are the loberias.
The secret: It was proposed to make the longest canopy in Chile that passes through the Estaquilla Bay, and put all efforts to promote tourism.
10 kilometers north of Caleta Estaquilla, in the Los Lagos Region, is Huar Huar. It is an open and uninhabited beach with more than 3 kilometers of sand. It is characterized by its enormous dunes and native forests that cover great part of the hills.
The secret: The coastal road that seeks to link Chile from north to south along the coast, passes through Huar Huar, but is under construction.
It is a beach located 20 kilometers north of Estaquilla, near the mouth of the Llico River, in the Los Lagos Region. For this reason, huge streams of water meet in the sea, which makes their coasts dangerous for bathing. The road is very difficult as it is covered with extensive vegetation that comes from the native forests of this area. At some times of the year, it is common to see enormous roots that interrupt the way.
The coast forms large cliffs and extravagant rock formations.
The secret: Fishing is an activity you cannot miss that can be successfully performed in this place.
