Isla Quinchao - Other Activity Castro - Chile

Five minutes on a ferry from Dalcahue, and thus within easy striking distance from Castro, Quinchao is one of Chilo√©‚Äôs most visited (and largest) islands, though it maintains a virgin, ‚Äėeven further off the already unbeaten path‚Äô feel.

Visitors arrive first in the town of Curaco de V√©lez, famous for its oysters, to the slightly larger Achao ‚Äď home to the oldest of Chilo√©‚Äôs churches. Of the two towns, Achao offers more options for lodging and dining. Buses serve the one-hour Castro to Achao route every hour during the day.
