Playa de la Mina, Paracas

3.8
#1 of 8 in Beaches in Ica Region
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.

  • Clean, cozy and calm beach. Its waters are calm and it combines with its white sands. Recommended in the off-season by the smaller number of people.

  • A nice, quiet place to go with small children. Sand clean and free of obstacles to let them run a while. Water clear but cold. What I can add is that it is a place with enough wind and now in November still a little cool, so it should be an extra clothes to change above all with young children. Rent umbrella to 20 soles ($6) for an unlimited period. There is parking and a station with toilets and a couple of snacks and bottled drinks stalls.

  • Beautiful beach with a history that must be discovered. You must be good physically to reach it
