Playa de la Mina, Paracas

3.8
#1 of 9 in Beaches in Ica Region
Get away from the heat and refresh yourself at Playa de la Mina. Situated 4 km (2.4 miles) from the town, the beach can only be accessed by car and is rarely crowded. Swim in the cool blue water, lounge on the sand, and experience the peaceful atmosphere of the isolated beach. As part of the Paracas National Reserve, the secluded cove is surrounded by desert and can get quite windy in the afternoons. Have a picnic, admire the backdrop of rocky cliffs, or try to spot the seabirds and dolphins that inhabit the area.

  • It's a really busy beach with no charm at all. National Park the beach is located in is far more interesting. More about Paracas, Peru and South America travel, on our blog thekcouple.  more »
  • Even though the place is really beautiful, it is really windy here. So you can't really enjoy your stay in here.  more »
