Around Concepción

The coastal towns and the nearby beaches can rapidly be reached by modern public busses. Many locals prefer to visit the communes to the north of Concepción, such as Penco, Tomé, Lirquén, and Dichato.

More crowded and less crowded beaches can be found to the south of the city, e.g.Playa Blanca between Coronel and Lota, two former black coal towns along the “Ruta del Carbón”. The “Chiflón del Diablo” black coal mine offers tours where shafts below the Pacific ocean are visited.

A must is the "Desembocadura" where the Bio Bio river meets the Pacific Ocean and the Penininsula of Hualpén where you can find white- sanded bays like Ramuntcho and a former whale factory in Chome.

Towards the inland, dense forests and some small and medium- size winemakers can be found around the Itata Valley which can easily be reached by a modern highway. Free visits, only forty minutes from Concepción, are offered by Celulosa Arauco near Nueva Aldea, where you can visit the most modern cellulose producing factory in South America. Visits have to be reserved in advanced and are available from Monday to Saturday.
