Once a quiet, removed beach, Reñaca has been incorporated into Viña del Mar thanks to the tourist city's increasing urban sprawl. Now a buzzing hub for sun-worshippers, the beach offers excellent facilities, plenty of places to grab a meal or a drink, and an energetic atmosphere. Expect fairly large crowds during summer, as locals and tourists alike flock to the scenic attraction. Check with locals before swimming: the surf can be quite dangerous in certain conditions. Plan to visit Reñaca and other customer-reviewed, writer-recommended Vina del Mar attractions using our Vina del Mar trip builder website.

Playa Renaca is a scenic place with rocks and beach alongside of Pacific Ocean. One can see some impressive buildings inwards. Certainly worth visiting.
