Playa de la Mina, Paracas

3.9
#2 of 10 in Parks 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.

Where to stay in Paracas

A beach resort town located close to a national park and several islands, Paracas benefits from a set of accommodations that suit the diverse tastes of its many visitors. Options both luxury and basic sit on the edge of the main coastal road, offering extensive views of the water and additional facilities, including pools, spas, and onsite restaurants. Move farther from the water to find budget-friendly guesthouses, offering comfortable rooms but few amenities. To the south, a cluster of eco-lodges and resorts mark the entrance to the national park, and make good use of the additional space just outside of the main town.
