Playa de la Mina, Paracas

(4/5 based on 360+ 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.

  • Nice beach removed approximately 20 minutes ' drive from Paracas. single trip costs 30 soles with taxi. No shopping at beach so everything bring. back to paracas you can hours the 15 km in 2.5 walking through the desert. don't forget sunscreen and preferably long light clothes.

  • this is a beautiful place. very cold but good quite waves. small and crowded sometimes. clean water and almost clean beach.  more »
  • It is so transparent that you see fish swimming next to you, that if there are no public toilets on hand, must walk about eighty meters, because it is called "Virgin Beach"
