Safe, tranquil neighbourhood - great place to spend the day strolling, reading a book, relaxing. Easily reachable by bus or collectivo from anywhere along Javier prado/ sanchez carrion.

La Punta is a small beach town, has a beautiful church, small main plaza, schools, restaurants, malecon, stoney beach - Cantolao (colder than other beaches in Lima) nice atmosphere and ambiance and safe, Naval Academy and Regattas Club are here too. It is good to visit during the day if you go by bus.

Nice walk by the beach in a stylish early 20th century resort. Can take a boat to sail around the bay, go swimming or just see the sunset.

La Punta (the point) is a peninsula overlooking two islands with many boats and ships. I was invited to eat at a restaurant situated on a pier. Incredible sea food! Be careful with the rocoto sauce! Hot!!! It's a summer place for many people. The navy academy is located there. It's a narrow strip of land with beautiful homes and... More

The residential district of La Punta, located at the northern tip of Lima, is worth a visit if you’re in Callao. Callao is Peru’s main port, founded in 1537, today one of the largest ports on the pacific side of the American hemisphere (also earned the title as the biggest cocaine traffic port in the world since 1949!).
