Playa de la Mina, Paracas
(4.2/5 based on 280+ reviews on the web)
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. Take a look at our Paracas trip generator to schedule your visit to Playa de la Mina and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.

  • Ideal for swimming or snorkeling. If I recommend to go early for the afternoon it starts running a little strong wind and gives a bit of cold.
