You see this entrance gateway of Antofagasta in photographs, but it's definitely more majestic once you there. Seeing the action of wind and sea erosion is startling, and being surrounded by barren sea cliffs to the west is unmissable. The union of the desert and the sea is really an image that can not be missed.
When you're riding through the world's most arid desert, the Atacama, on the side of the road in northern Chilean you'll see this impressive 7-meter tall concrete hand, work of a Chilean artist. It's a very beautiful piece that becomes an icon of the region
The sea is one of my favorite places because it relaxes me quite a lot and helps to clear my mind to think about myself, about my problems but somethingmore important is that it inspires me too. At sea, on the beach any picture works well for me, a cloudy day and the sea is a very spectacular background for a beautiful photograph that expresses all my feelings.
I normally go to visit my maternal grandfather's grave, in the cemetery of the city of Antofagasta .... it's a long journey to get to the second level of the cemetery where it is located.... one day I was coming where the grave of my grandfather is and I realized that the view from where his remains are resting is really beautiful ... and I came across it only this afternoon ... I hope you enjoy the picture ... greetings!
This beach, with soft white sand and calm blue sea, is 30 minutes from the city. It has beautiful sandstone formations from wind erosion. You can watch beautiful sunsets which turn the water orange and violet and contrast with the driest desert in the world. You can fish, windsurf, dive and do other water sports. It's an ideal place to relieve stress, and relax within nature with its million year-old cliffs. The climate is nice and is suitable for swimming and water sports. The cliffs change colour at sunset and sunrise, and the wind and sea erosion has created picturesque and fanciful shapes.
This is the view of Punta de Angamos taken from the Fishing Pier in Antofagasta. In Punta de Angamos, you'll find the major port of mussels, the Juan Lopez spa, and the Rinconada. Punta de Angamos dates back to pre-Hispanic times to the age time of saltpeter and guano, and was also part of the Pacific War. It has beautiful beaches, blue waters, clear skies throughout the year, and a pleasant temperatures of 16°C in winter.
This place, aside from being in front of the Antofagasta's distinctive square, is notable for being particularly well-maintained and you can see its beauty in full detail. It's very accessible since it is just steps from downtown Antofagasta and the walk there is very nice.
As I reached Antofagasta, I went to get something to eat. Afterwards, I went to the waterfront and found this beautiful sunset that I imagine, with a good northern climate like this, was normal. Sunsets teach us to remember that even little things can be equally beautiful.
