Discover Chile’s Northern Beach Paradise

Nestled between the vast desert and a coastline of white sand, you’ll find Iquique, Chile. Meaning Peaceful Place of Rest, Iquique is the capital of the Tarapacá Region, and a true paradise on the Pacific—with everyone from surfers to shoppers flocking to its charming shores.

Iquique’s vibrancy shines at every turn, from its unique wooden sidewalks to Playa Cavancha— a stunning sandy beach that feels as though it could go on forever. Take a stroll from the sand down Baquedano Street—taking time to stop in the picturesque shops before grabbing a bite to eat (and a legendary Chilean coffee) on one of the many patios.

If you’re looking for more of an adventure on the sand than a relaxing day at the beach can provide, make your way to Cerro Dragon (The Dragon Hill) for a hike up the world’s largest urban sand dune. While you’re here, try your hand at sandboarding—or just take in the incredible views.

Those in the mood for some retail therapy are in luck—Iquique boasts a duty-free shopping status. Pay a visit to Zona Franca (known as Zofri to locals) for a thrilling shopping experience where you can find everything from clothes and jewelry to electronics at amazing prices.

History buffs will love taking a trip back through time in Humberstone—a UNESCO World Heritage Site located 45 minutes inland. Once a thriving mining community, Humberstone is now a ghost town waiting to be explored—one that is sure to stay with you long after your boutique hotel at sea leaves port.
