The sizes of nature differ and the hard life of fishermen who go out to sea is perceived from this isolated nook in Gulf Relancovi.
Getting to see what Tenglo Island had to offer while lying right off the City of Puerto Montt had always intrigued us. We wanted to know its lifestyles and secrets. Therefore, we resolved to go there in the flesh.
The crossing is carried out by boatmen who offer their services at a small berth located at the access to the market of Angelmó. Old wooden barges, many of them propelled by rowing, give a picturesque tone to this eight-minute voyage. Both islanders and tourists share these crafts.
Sitting in the boat, a few centimeters away from the water, we slowly grew apart from the shore and obtained a panoramic view of the port, the ocean drive and the classic palafitos (constructions built on stilts) housing restaurants. As we landed, we were welcomed by the wild vegetation and an old hotel and restaurant owned by the Hoffmann family, famous for having cooked delicious curantos de hoyo and now abandoned.
