This is famous for its red sand beach within the Paracas National Reserve. The red sand was produced by ancient volcanoes under the ocean. The best way to see this beach is from the cliff above. Well worth a visit.

Nature displaying colours Not a beach to play around as such but geology is captivating. Did it as part of the Paracas Nature Reserve tour

This isn't someplace you'd spend hours at, but it's cool to visit for 10-30 minutes. One of few in the world, beautiful, and clean. It was pretty remote and untouched.

If the sun does shine, you will detect the red colour in the sand. if not, it will be a smallish brown bay and not much else.

We drove from Lima to Paracas and Nazca. The roads are well paved, and have no traffic. It terms of safety, they are safe except for the police (!!): we were pulled to the side at a "check point" and forced to a US$100 pay... More
