The classiest and most attractive of all the Litoral’s resorts, ZAPALLAR is a sheltered, horseshoe bay backed by lushly wooded hills where luxurious holiday homes and handsome old mansions nestle between the pine trees. Apart from the beach, you can also stroll along the coastal path around the bay, or walk up Avenida Zapallar, admiring the early twentieth-century mansions. More strenuous possibilities include hiring a sea-kayak or climbing the 692m Cerro Higuera.
