Monumento Natural Isla Cachagua Reviews & Ratings
I understand that the penguins are not always there due to migration patterns. We went in late December 2011 and saw hundreds, maybe thousands, of penguins. We hired a fishing boat to take us around the island (you cannot go onto the island as it and the penguins are protected). We got close enough to get amazing photos (from the boat) of penguins and birds. We hired a fishing boat from Zapallar to the island and back. I recall it took about 40 minutes each way and about 1 hour taking photos. It was an unforgettable experience!
The island look great with a lot of bird. Very pretty for sunset
Beautiful. Island full of penguins!
Es un lugar paradisíaco. Para estar en familia o en pareja.
На острове множество птиц. А также это единственное место неподалёку от Сантьяго, где круглогодично можно увидеть Магелланских пингвинов. Вдоль красивейшего побережья проложена дорожка, с которой открывается вид на остров Пингвинов. Захватите с собой бинокль или телевик. Остров хоть и совсем рядом, но птиц невооружённым глазом рассмотреть сложно
