I think it was my fault for expecting a pristine, tucked away beach on a Sunday. The drive here was beautiful but there were so many people. It was loud and crowded, definitely not the experience I was hoping for. I came to Paracas for...More

25 years ago, myself and a bunch of biologists from Lima used to go to this beach and surrounding areas to clean, protect and conserve the natural beauty of the area. This particular beach still is as beautiful as I remember. Good for a full...More

The beach area is small and secluded, but was not that crowded when I went. The water is beautiful, but cold. The drop off is steep, so it's hard to do much wading. The backside of the beach is a cliff and you enter by...More
