Playa Roja, Paracas

(200+ reviews on the web)
Beach
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.

  • The sea has its charms but seeing colors that nature may have in their day to day is lovely. Never before had seen a beach with red sand, looks like painted but in reality was made by the ma or God for the pleasure of men. It is a beautiful place and super recommended. Hear the waves of the sea because the beach is music to the ears and see losdifirentes shades of blue in this magical landscape is a delight for the eyes. Super recommended
