Where to go in Licán Ray?
Located 30 km south of Villarrica and 17 km northeast of Panguipulli. The lake has a surface area of approximately 180 km², with 7 small islands, including Trailafquén, Balboa, Los Monos and Las Cuevas. It has a lovely beach, but lacks any kind of tourist infrastructure.
A lovely place with abundant vegetation, prominently conifers and other types of wild trees. You can find small beaches on its banks, each with their own charms, very beautiful landscapes, crystal-clear waters and privacy. Viewpoints at both ends of the peninsula give a view of Licán Ray, the lake and the islands. Located between Playa Grande (Large Beach) and Playa Chica (Small Beach), there is access to both beaches.
