The Caulín bird sanctuary displays a great diversity of regional fauna and birds that coexist with the small seaside community.
Caulín Bay lies between the port of Chacao and the City of Ancud, on the Eastern coast of Chiloé Island. When the tide is low, this beautiful beach offers an ideal shelter for migratory birds which choose this place as their season habitat.
A wonderful population of flamingoes, black-necked swans, herons and seagulls stands out amongst the great variety of birds which may be easily spotted in this singular place. This is the reason why numerous tourists visit this nook all year round.
In the various seasons, Caulín is the magnificent natural scenery for over 60 sea species. In the summer, about 1,500 specimens of black-necked swans populate the area, whereas in the fall and in the winter, about a thousand pink flamingoes visit the bay.
