Pingüinos de Humboldt National Reserve

Uninhabited islands with astonishing animal presence and white sandy beaches are what the Pingüinos de Humboldt National Reserve, made up of the Chañaral, Damas and Choros Islands has to offer.

On these islands, you can be in touch with nature when you’re face-to-face with sea lions, bottlenose dolphins and colonies of Humboldt penguins, for which the park is named. If you come in the warmer season between October and April you may even see firsthand the gigantic hump-backed, blue and fin whales.

As well as admiring the beautiful beaches of Damas Island, you can also rest here, dive into its waters and walk along its trails to reach lookouts to enjoy amazing views of the reserve as the sun sets on the horizon.
