Postmodern Brava Beach
On this beach, dawn unveils hundreds of tourists and locals working out in the mornings. Its white and hard sands turn it into an ideal place for jogging. The '90s have left their trace in huge hotels which, with their modern and daring architecture, could take the sea up to the very rooms and common areas.
On these beaches, as soon as the sun is hot, the surf boards seize the waters and, at the cry of “Let’s go surfin’ now, everybody´s learning how” (the song which made surfing famous in the world), dozens of young boys and girls from all around Chile begin to go deep into the sea.
They can be seen for hours waiting for the perfect swell or relaxing with the soft movement of the sea and its tides, calm but always on time.
At dusk, dozens of groups of young people arrive by car or settle on the sand with their guitars, campfires and some appetizers to enjoy the last sun beams offered by the ocean.
Brava or Cavancha, Iquique offers in its beaches the crowd or the calmness to delight visitors and invite them to get into a sea which is never cold and always has something to be discovered.
It is advisable to wear sun protection and not to be exposed to the sun at noon.Difficulty
