|At over 3,000m above sea level, Playa Blanca on the southern shores of the Lago de Tota may be one of the highest beaches in the world. And it’s a pleasant, picturesque and fairly well facilitated spot for sure, although all that elevation does mean that the cold, wind and rain might put off the sunbathers somewhat! – Daniel|
