El Silencio, Punta Hermosa

#2 of 9 in Beaches in Lima Region
Relax on the white sands of El Silencio, or go for a dip in its calm azure waters. The gentle breeze lends itself to windsurfing, while clear waters make swimming and snorkeling enjoyable. No need to bring a picnic; plenty of nearby restaurants serve up a wide variety of snacks and seafood. Look out for the pelicans diving for fresh fish. Be sure to pack plenty of sunscreen as well as a sun umbrella, as there are not many naturally shaded areas on this wide, long beach.

    A couple of years ago this beach had a bunch of dismal restaurants and was a bit dirty, but now there are a just few restaurants set back off the beach, and they will bring beers and food out to your ...  more »

    It's a very interesting beach. With extensive sand track that you can even drive down and Park in the sand. Our local guide told us that the beach has this name because in the 70 he and some friends surfers, ended up finding out there, a wave that was very good and zero crowd, and didn't tell anyone. So, when people asked where they had surfed .... silence! RS.. I don't know if it's funny or really true! lol

    A good beach which is about 1 hour from downtown Lima. The restaurants will be out on the beach with the food we ordered which is nice. The fish you eat is super fresh and you can see the fishing boats come and go with freshly caught fish. Minus that it is very difficult to swim. The waves are very high and it's very strong current.
