Easy to get to from Antofagasta city. The views both south and north of this point really drive home the point of the isolation and hostile coast that seafarers of centuries past faced in exploring this new world. It is worth the contemplation.

La Portada - product of seawater abrasive activity together with adjacent cliffs, roaring ocean and sounds of cormorant is a place which is necessary to visit, if you are in Antofagasta.One feels highly small in comparison with the infinite power of nature. Go and see!
