Its coastline is 6,435km (3,998 miles) long which is perfect for surfing and exciting adventure activities on the beach. Chile is bordered by Peru in the north, Bolivia in the northeast and Argentina in the east. The capital city of Chile is Santiago, a beautiful city to visit. At the southernmost tip it borders the Drake Passage which leads around Cape Horn to the eastern side of South America. Although it is long, Chile only averages about 109 miles wide.
