Even though the place is really beautiful, it is really windy here. So you can't really enjoy your stay in here.

Loved here, it is a magical cliff that seems to take you back in time, with strong winds, and loud waves one can feel in another special place, once you are inside the natural reserve of Paracas, you can drive around until finding your spot,...More

We visited as part of our excursion organised by the Hotel Hacienda bahía Paracas. Could not resist the cold waters of the Peruvian Ocean and I had to have a swim.! Loved it!

The beach area is small and secluded, but was not that crowded when I went. The water is beautiful, but cold. The drop off is steep, so it's hard to do much wading. The backside of the beach is a cliff and you enter by...More

It was cold when I came, but there were still beach go-ers. It's a fairly small beach, but it offered some good views. I would recommend having this to do on your visit to the park.
