Fodor's Review

Well-sheltered within a small cove, La Herradura—or The Horseshoe—is a small but attractive beach, which enjoys calm waters and lies within easy striking distance of Coquimbo. These days it is best known as a holiday destination or as a prime spot for diving and windsurfing, but the area’s history as a fishing cove can still be seen in the brightly colored boats tethered out in the calm waters of the bay. Amenities: food and drink; parking (fee). Best for: swimming; sunset; surfing; windsurfing; snorkeling.
