The Central Coast Sights

Fodor's Review

Zapallar's raison d'être is a crescent of golden sand kissed by blue-green waters, with a giant boulder plopped in the middle. Cropped at each end by rocky points and backed by large pines and rambling flower gardens, it may well be the loveliest beach on the Central Coast. Amenities: food and drink. Best for: swimming; sunset; snorkeling.

Amazing scenery

One of the top beaches for beauty in the world. If the crashing surf isn't enough, turn around and oggle the amazing mansions clinging to the steep hill that surrounds the beach. We were there after summer break...early March...and there was virtually no-one on the beach.
