NileGuide Expert tip:
Try to arrange your accomodation in advance.
This a beautiful, long beach with some beautiful waves, where some of the Peruvian surf champions started their training. To get to this beach you have to take the Panamericana Sur road and go to the km. 41; it is not far from Lima, specially from east and south districts like Miraflores, Surco or San Borja: now, once we reach km. 41, the beach itself is pretty near. Many people choose to come here because it is relatively easy to arrive with public transportation and because it is not too hard to find accomodations; there are hotels and many local residents rent temporarily their houses (or just rooms) to those who want to spend some days or weeks at this summer spot. Take note, however, that getting there on weekends on summer can be painful due to the traffic jams. You will find plenty of restaurants and clubs, that in summer organize many events and parties.
