The parks are what make Miraflores great, in my opinion. The Park of Love (Parque del Amor) features some great, colorful tile walls and a great view. However, the park smells a little unpleasant.
The Lighthouse Park (Parque el Faro) also has a great view from the cliff and offers a great seat for locals playing soccer.
I can't remember the name. I've also heard it called the Miraflores Roundabout. It's on the on Av. Jose Pardo. It has a lovely park, some pretty building and promising markets. I watched some locals do some type of yoga in the shaded area in the park. There were dozens are artists selling their painting and the Cathedral was great.
Not far from there was a local market (I felt a little conspicious with my light hair and skin) where I just plain absorbed the sights and smells (some not so great as others).
An Inca market nearby was Artesanias Urin Huanca S.A.
Go to hang out at Larco Mar, and eat at the restaurant that has a patio overlooking the ocean. Great scenary and great buffet lunch. One of my favorite memory in Peru. Also, movie is cheap there and often is in English with Spanish subtitles. Walk down to the beach and listen to the water washing off the pebbles and rocks, very soothing, you definitely know you are on vacation. Walk along the shore down south to the park where there is the statue of a couple embracing, very green. Also check out the paragliding activitiy, which is $35 for 15 min. (if I remembered correctly). An experience pilot will take you in the sky gliding over the cliff, a great experience!
If you are travelling with your girlfriend I can highly recommend this very romantic park. Panoramic view over the pacific ocean approximately 50 metres below, the sound from the waves and a red sunset creates the frames for a perfect evening.
This park was dedicated to lovers to make an exception of the typical monuments dedicated to warriors
At the Morro Solar in Chorrillos, there is a enlighted cross, that recently has been erected.
I gives quite an impressing picture of the beach panorama.
If you are inspired you can go to the Park of love in Miraflores (El Parque del Amor), and you will get a good view.
El distrito más habitual para los turistas, donde la mayoría de los hoteles y comercio de categoría internacional se localiza. Existen parques, como el Alfredo Salazar y el Parque del Amor,a orillas del Océano Pacífico, desde donde se divisa una excelente panorámica de las playas. Construido en un acantilado está el Centro Comercial Larcomar, donde comprar, comer e ir al cine.

Some people are dissapointed at the lack of a good beach, but I prefer a rocky, windy, cliff-lined coastline. There's something very majestic about it, and the views are nice.
Walking at the coast of Miraflores gives you some nice view. Also saw a nice park which reminded me a bit of Park Guell in Barcelona (not as impressive as park guell but still nice)
Visit the parks overlooking the ocean! Laco Mar has a great view, movies, bowling, alot of shopping and great dining!
I live in JAPAN. It's the first time for me to look at the Pacific ocean from the opposite side.
Here is near Miraflores district.
This is where all the lovers in Lima come to kiss. It is a beautiful location overlooking the ocean. It can be very romantic.
