Welcome to Pichilemu
Wave gods and goddesses brave the icy waters of Chile's unofficial surf capital year-round, while mere beach-going mortals fill its long black sands December through March. The town itself isn't winning any beauty pageants any time soon, but it has an odd charm and heaps of quality restaurants, cafes and hotels to keep visitors happy. Just outside the town center, the streets are still unpaved, lending an atavistic air to this peaced-out surfer village. Further south, you'll find a string of small villages that have amazing surf, small lodges and plenty of good-times vibes that harken back to the golden days of surfing.
