A stone beach with very quiet and safe waters, it was the summer spot for the rich class during the 19th century. So there are many large family houses and beautiful marinas dated from those times, and even some pintoresque buildings from the 1950's. The seafront landscape is beautiful, and during clear summer days you can see El Fronton and San Lorenzo islands from the beach; you will find also the Escuela Naval (Official Navy Academy) and the Instituto del Mar (Sea Research Institute) here. Nowadays there are still people who live here all year round, since it is only an hour drive from Lima downtown. Many bathers love this beach specially because of the lack of sand. There are many restaurants and food stalls nearby, not in the same beach since it's a residential area, but certainly within walking distance; you will find almost everything, from creole dishes to old typical desserts, including fresh seafood of course.
