The best view of the island can be accomplished if you climb the huge rock where the lighthouse stands. It's an easy climb, and although there is a sign telling you not to trespass, then again, who will tell you not to? Climb it, take pictures, and go back down again. And please, don't play with the lighthouse. It's there for a reason. Take care of it.
Last, but definately not least. This is, according to me (and everybody I went to the island with) the best beach on the island. It's definately one of the best beaches I've seen in Chile. Simply amazing. And calm. We were the only ones there.
From the campsite to the west (take your right at the whalebone), you'll find this beach which is surrounded by sea. Impressive. The picture shows the beach with low tides. Imagine it with high tides. A strip of white sand surrounded by ocean...
The three islands, Isla Choros, Isla Damas and Isla Gaviota are no volcanic islands. Just 100% rock. Not volcanic rock.
Anyhow, the sea, the wind and the hand of God has made some beautiful formations as the one in the picture. From Isla Choros, I present to you La Portada (the name resembles the rock formation in Antofagasta which is a much larger scale of this one)
Isla Choros is the island next to Isla Damas, and this is where all the animals are. You can see them from the boat, but you cannot touch the land. No men allowed. Better off for the animals.
On your way to Isla Damas, pay the fishermen a bit extra and they'll take you to see the animals. On your way, you might see dolphins. We didn't. Damn. We were the only ones that didn't see them. Damn again.
This beach is next to the dock. Being the first out of 3 it can be considered as a nice beach. Just imagine waking up and seeing this beach in front of the tent. What else do you need?
This National Park is called, for obvios reasons, Parque Nacional Ping?ino de Humboldt. You'll see plenty of this funny looking birds all over Isla Choros.
