Welcome to Lican Ray
Of all the towns in the Villarrica municipality, Lican Ray (meaning 'flower among the stones' in Mapudungun) is the prettiest for its location on the lovely north shore of island-studded Lago Calafquén. Just 30km south of Villarrica, this bathing resort is home to a long black-sand beach, ash-strewn roads and a remarkable leafy Plaza de Armas. The town itself is tiny and organized around its priciple thoroughfare, Av General Urrutia, which has most of the cabins, restaurants, cafes and artisan markets. In the low season, Lican Ray all but closes down.
