Playa Roja, Paracas

4.3
#2 of 8 in Beaches in Ica Region
Admire the dramatic contrast of colors on display at Playa Roja, a beach with deep reddish-hued sand, azure waters, and yellow and ochre cliffs. The sand gets its fiery hue from a type of igneous rock known as pink granodiorite, which contains solidified magma. The best and most convenient way of seeing this beach is with an organized tour, as the surrounding national park is too large to explore without guidance and proper vehicles.

  • This beach (what is not for bathing) was about 50 minutes of Paracas, has incredible scenery, very good pictures are taken, there is a place like 6 restaurants nearby, which have all sorts of typical food. You have inside your things to do 360 viewpoint which gives you the best experience.
