This beach was one of the stops on our Margarita Jeep Tour. The beach is relatively undeveloped and was really peaceful. There are chairs and shades available, 3 dollars for two chairs & a shade!! We had a nice lunch of barbequed fish in the beach bar.

This was a very calm and peaceful area. The water was nice and the road towards the beach is quite unique. It's a bit dry and something to behold.

Great place for those who look for peace. Very beautiful beach, with calm, hot and blue waters. There is place to eat and rest. Good place to go with family or children.

We had a nice time at this beach...the water was just perfect..it was of the stops on our jeep tour. The best part was swing the fishermen coming in with their catch. Never seen so much barracuda before.

As you near Punta Arenas there is a huge sign that says Penguinera. So rather than endure the choppy, cold boat ride out to Magdalena island we thought we would try the drive up version. You drive about 15 minutes down a gravel road and just when you thought the sign must have been wrong you come to a little... More

The Punta Arena Beach is far from the city in Margarita Island, however it is a nice and beautiful beach, without waves, it has nice restaurants and you can rent chairs and umbrellas to spend a nice day in the beach.
