There are interesting tourist attractions in the city: picturesque places, museums, historical squares, natural reserves, marshland, monuments, duty free shops and a coastline made to measure for everyone have fun.

The Punta Arenas coastline is a 3km urban platform of modern squares, footpath, cycle lane and a trail for blind people. Also counts with court for sports, exercise machines, chest game tables, nice areas for resting, beautiful panoramic view and a freezing water beach.
The people of the city are very proud and enjoying their coastline road very much.
