Edit Spot

Day dream spot for local surfing club members (3 surfing clubs in front of the break) as they can surf before and after work, or at lunch. Many red tide days, or "Maxi-pad alert" days with trash in the water, but biologically it's safe. Go to to check pollution levels.

Right in town, with parking in front of the break. Crowded in summer (Nov to Apr) otherwise lonely. Very consistent. "No waves" means waist to head high. Closes out on bigger days, for which everyone moves south to Triangulos. Often has a strong current going north, once out past the breakwater. Inside the breakwater, it's the opposite, current takes you south to the pier and breakwater (but never into it - don't worry).

Additional Info:
The only problem are the robbers..once, someone stole my shoes...but not so violence, just keep an eye on your things.
Nice wave...very cool, recommend big boards cause waves are very weak..and its difficult to grab a wave if you have a short board or bodyboard. I had a 8´2 and it worked perfect there...

San Onofre style break, with the first break some 300 or more yards out, with a couple more breaks on the way to the beach. Rock beach and parking lot is full of rusty nails, broken glass, etc; booties help. Paddle out through the center, then move left to the breakwater to get the channel outside. The paddle out kills most USA beach break surfers. There are lefts, but falling to the temptation to go left takes you inside where it's impossible to get back out. Simply move south and go back out through the channels.


You go down the Costa Verde "green coast". At the side of the well known restaurant La Rosa Nautica "Nautic Rose". Also in front of the surf club Pacifico Sur "South Pacific".

Right in the center of Miraflores (in Lima), is the beach south of Pampilla and right in front of the beach clubs. Taxi or drive your car. Parking lots are available. Pier restaurant Rosa Nautica is the landmark, cannot miss it.
