To the north: La Sorda, La Chicanera, Arantas, Huacchiray, Huagin, the Valley and the Caleta of

Quilca stand out for their beauty and historical richness. And to the south, Caletas Ancumpita, La Huata, Honoratos and Isla Hornillos impressive to the sight where we find the greatest variety of marine fauna.
