Nicest beach we saw in Trujillo/Chiclayo. We saw fisherman out early and swimmers and surfers later. People fishing all the time. The pier is really long and you can walk all the way to end

It is a nice place to stop and eat. You can watch at fisherman coming back even buy some fish for your super.

I really enjoyed all the variety of food and services offered at this beach. It reminds me a lot of Huanchaco in Trujillo, but the water is cleaner and it's not as crowded as Mancora. Great option for taking taking a swim, watching pelicans and...More

I went to spend overnight there and what I found was this place was over pricing, incredible cold (it was winter by te way so it's not the worst) and dangerous. Everybody kept telling us don't stay close left side of the port because it...More
