Welcome to Cabo Blanco


About 40km north of Talara is the sleepy town of Cabo Blanco, one of the world’s most famous fishing spots. Set on a gently curving bay strewn with rocks, the town has a flotilla of fishing vessels floating offshore, where the confluence of warm Humboldt currents and El Niño waters creates a unique microcosm filled with marine life.

Ernest Hemingway was supposedly inspired to write his famous tale The Old Man and the Sea after fishing here in the early 1950s.
