    Although the guide did not mention it, we saw surfers off the Miraflores beach. I understand there is also parasailing and such activities off the cliffs. (photo 4). The beach itself isn't that attractive.

  • Horseback Riding on the Peruvian Paso Horse

    by MerlinAmsterdam Written May 22, 2008

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    At the end of our exiting holidays in Peru, we went also on a nice Horseback ride trip. We went over sand dunes, through villages, belong some facturies and over the beaches back to the stables. We rid on the Peruvian Paso Horse which is Peruvian breed and known for its smooth ride. The landowners centuries ago, breeded them this way becuase they needed to travel for hours to check their lands and didn't want to get tired to quickly. Well, you need some riding experience and if you have you could consider this, in our opinion, unique ride. Also worth mentioning that the horses are very well taken care.

    Equipment: Sun scream, a hat, sun glasses, comfortable shoes and a sweater

    Miraflores beach

    Lima is not an idillic place for Pacific Ocean beaches. Anyway, if you are in need, the best beaches in town are those in Miraflores and Barranco. They are black pebbles beaches, narrow and not very pleasant for sunbathing, as they get crowded in summer.
    For better beaches, you have to go out of Lima, like Punta Hermosa, San Bartolo, Pico Alto or Punta Rocas. Though there are public buses, hiring a car wuld be a good option for a daytrip there.

    Surfers at Miraflores

    Surfing is a rather popular activity here in Lima. Though I came here in autumn, I saw many surfers when I went to Miraflores beach. If you go for lunch to the Rosa Nautica restaurant, you will see them riding the waves from the terrace of the restaurant, a fabulous observation deck. If you don't want to enter the restaurant, you can go to the end of the pier and see the riders from there.

    Surfing is big in Lima and the surrounding beaches

    Surfers congregate at the end of the day

    We are not surfers, but from what everyone told us, the beaches around Lima are hot surfing destinations. In fact, one of the top surfers on the women's professional cicuit gre up surfing these beaches. I can't remember her Eastern European sounding name, but she is known by everyone in Lima as "La Gringa" even though she's a native Peruvian. In fact, she was named one of the top two most famous Peruvians this year -- the other being the Miss Universe winner.
    This surfing beach is right in Lima, below the cliffs of Miraflores. The water isn't very clean and my cousin got pretty cut up swimming unprotected here, but apparently the locals with the right equipment enjoy it -- there were around a hundred surfers in the water one Sunday.
