Tiny beach definitely worth visiting. We went from copiapo to caldera with a bus which departed from the buss terminal next to the Lider (supermarket) for 3.500 CLP. From Caldera we took a collectivo to 1.000 CLP to Bahia Inglesa.

We visited here for the day, the beach is beautiful and popular. There is restaurants and shops on the beach front to get drinks and to eat. We visited by private taxi for 35 chilean pesos 1 way from Copiapo
