Top 10 Surf Spots

6. Lima Peru

With warm summer waters, uncrowded breaks, and surf for all abilities, it's no wonder Peru is becoming an increasingly popular surf destination. While some of the pebbled beaches and grey waters of Peru's Costa Verde ("green coast") may not look entirely appealing, the range of surf is second to none. The beaches in the Miraflores district are considered good places for beginners. Further south, large, sandy beaches can be found in the districts of Santa María del Mar, Punta Hermosa and Punta Negra.

More experienced surfers tend to head further south to the large, sandy beaches found in the districts of Santa María del Mar, Punta Negra and Punta Hermosa. World champion surfer Sofia Mulanovich was born in Punta Hermosa and it's here you’ll find Pico Alto with awesome 4m average waves. We're sure surfers keen to test out the waves on Peru's 250km long Pacific coastline won't be disappointed!

Did you know...?
Hawaii isn't the only place in the world with a beach named Waikiki. Carlos Dogny, a sugarcane heir, so christened a Peruvian beach when he returned to Lima in 1942 after visiting the islands and falling in love with the sport of the Hawaiian kings.
