Isla Tenglo - Beach Puerto Montt - Chile

Where do Puertomontinos go to relax come weekends and holidays? They head right across the narrow channel, Canal de Tenglo, that separates Isla Tenglo from the mainland by only 100-150 meters (325-488 feet). Its broad dark-grey sand is perfect for sunning or beachcombing. Hike up to the giant cross atop the island’s hill. From here are terrific views of the city,

Volcanoes Osorno, Calbuco and Puntigudo and the serrated sierra edging the Patagonia coast. Afterwards enjoy fresh fish and seafood at a simple restaurant before catching the launch at sunset with the Portomosinos returning home.

Two kilometers (1.2 miles) from downtown Puerto Montt
