El Quisco

Fodor's Review

South of Algarobbo, El Quisco is nothing but a long beach of pale sand guarded on either end by stone jetties. In the middle of the beach is a boulder with a 15-foot-high, six-pronged cactus sculpture perched atop it. South of the beach is the blue-and-yellow cove, where boats anchored offshore create a picturesque composition. In summer, the beach is packed on sunny days, as visitors outnumber quisqueños (locals) about 10 to 1. Amenities: food and drink. Best for: walking; sunset; swimming.
