El Silencio, Punta Hermosa

#3 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.

  • Now that they are no longer the kiosks, this beach has become nicer, quieter, with less noise. It is without doubt one of the best beaches in the South of Lima. Sea with medium waves, but be careful because 3 m from the shore, there is a huge depression and the floor is finished. WATCH OUT FOR CHILDREN. When the waves are very strong, or chopped sea, you must avoid the center of the beach and stay at the ends, because it is quieter and the currents are not as strong. While there are no kiosks, circulate many street vendors with drinks, beers, snacks and a lot of things. However, by order of the authorities, they also take care that no dirty 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
