Chile travel

Surfing

Do you love the sensation of salt spray on your face and feeling your heart pounding with each new wave? Chile has more than 4,000 kilometers of coast for you to explore. Ride some amazing waves in this true surfers’ paradise.

A temperate year-round climate, warm seas and a crazy wave called ‘El Gringo’, make Arica an essential destination for surfers from around the world. In Iquique, spectators applaud great surfing performances as the fanatics ride the perfect tubes formed at Cavancha beach.

In the central area of the country, Punta de Lobos in Pichilemu has been baptized the ‘world surfing capital’. It welcomes adrenaline junkies with waves of over 4 meters in height and currents that provide enviable conditions for surfing.

Constitución, a little further south, has hosted many international surf competitions because of its happy mix of calm beaches and strong waves, but it’s on nearby beaches like Dichato and Buchupureo that surfers are really put to the test by a combination of thundering waves and rugged rock formations.
