Magic is alive in this tranquil farming village 13km north of Cobquecura. Steep slopes covered with lush greenery surround the settlement, lending it a tropical air. Despite growing interest from tourists and surfers, the pace of life is slow here: oxen-pulled carts are still a common sight. It's also a famous fishing spot – corvina (sea bass) apparently jump onto any hook dangled off the beach.
Dunes and scrubland separate the desolate black-sand beach from the main road, which runs parallel to the shore before looping through the small town center to the beach. A couple of wooden walkways also connect the road and the sand.
