Peru Beach Holidays
If you've got a Peru beach holiday in mind, then you've got plenty of unique beach destinations to choose from. Stretching from Ecuador to Peru, there's a lot of coastline to cover. Start with the beautiful city beaches in Lima to get settled in as soon as you arrive.
Most people head to the beach town of Máncora for the surf, but there is far more on this stretch of sand than just epic waves. For one, the main beach is several kilometers long, leaving room for everyone and every kind of beach activity. Kitesurfing, snorkeling, diving, and fishing can all be arranged from Máncora's many travel shops. Plus, beachside restaurants and hotels mean you need never stray too far from the sand.
The city comes alive just before sunset when locals and travelers alike flock to the beach to watch the evening show. Watching the sunset into the South Pacific with a drink in hand is the best way to end a day in Máncora. Then its time to head to Máncora's many bars and clubs for the notorious nightlife.
To the south of Máncora Beach, you can also visit Las Pocitas, Vichayito, and Los Organos on a beach-hopping day tour.
Located close to the border of Ecuador, the coastal city of Tumbes is a unique stop on a beach-hopping tour of Peru. Here, the desert-like landscape that characterizes Peru's coast is replaced by maze-like mangrove forests and tropical rainforest reserves.
In Tumbes, you can lounge on a white sand beach one day and then row a canoe through the mangroves in search of crocodiles the next. This border town may not be the prettiest, but the surrounding nature certainly is.
