A walk down Av. Francisco de Aguirre from the center of town leads to a quaint lighthouse, the Avenida del Mar and La Serenaâ€™s long, popular beach. The beach is not nearly as pristine as others along Chileâ€™s coast, but it is an extremely popular destination for Chilenos in January and February. Lined with hotels, above-average restaurants and pubs, the beach is a Mecca of activity during the summer months. It looks more like a wasteland during the rest of the year.
