Playa de la Mina, Paracas

3.8
#2 of 23 in Beaches in Peru
Get away from the heat and refresh yourself at Playa de la Mina. Situated 4 km (2.4 miles) from the town, the beach can only be accessed by car and is rarely crowded. Swim in the cool blue water, lounge on the sand, and experience the peaceful atmosphere of the isolated beach. As part of the Paracas National Reserve, the secluded cove is surrounded by desert and can get quite windy in the afternoons. Have a picnic, admire the backdrop of rocky cliffs, or try to spot the seabirds and dolphins that inhabit the area.

  • I went with family, is a clean water sea beautiful Turquoise. The water is cold, but the waves are friendly. It gave me grief see remains of coal, we must take care of this beautiful place take all. If you go by car much better, you can make the stops you want, but you also have options to do it on Tour.

  • Paracas is located close to the Centre of 10 km. You can hide from the Sun in a small Cove around a wooded area. Very crowded on the weekends.
