Beautiful view

This was one of my favorite places in Lima. You can get a great view of the sea and the sound of the waves crashing with the pebble stones on the beach is just SOOO relaxing!..

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
