Yumaque Beach is inside Paracas National Park. It's a wild beach, not too crowded.
We were only for a couple of hours, but you can spend as much time as you want.

Breath taking cliffs and views of the pacific ocean. We made it for sunset and it was a bit cold and very windy. One of those places that reminds you of the California coast but with NOTHING around for miles.

Yumaque Beach is halfway between two famous and popular sites on the Paracas Peninsula: the so-called "La catedral" spot with its rocky collapsed arch, on the south, and the Lagunillas fishing port with its fish restaurants, on the north.
Compared to other beaches, this one has the peculiarity of being easily accessible: in fact it has no overhanging cliffs, but a gentle slope, which leads up to the shore.
Another peculiarity is that along the beach there are remains of dead animals, which are relentlessly mauled from those saprophage birds that are vultures. When we walked at the beach, there was a dead pelican on the shore, over which some vultures were crowded. They were clearly disturbed by our presence, but ready to return to their food as soon as we were gone.
Not far away there was also the huge carcass of a sea lion. It must have been there for a long time, because it was dried from the sun and the sand had partially covered it.
Since other visitors too have documented the presence of these remains, we have wondered why these dead animals should strand just here. Perhaps the sea streams bring dead animals here, even from afar?
Anyway, these gruesome presences, at least in the winter season (we were there in July) give a dramatic look to the beach, and warn at least Southern Europeans (as we are) about the difference between our Mediterranean sea that is (or seems to us) homey and welcoming, and the Ocean, to watch with greater respect; if not with fear.

We visited this beach twice during our stay in Paracas. It's wide and sandy with long breakers crashing on to the sands and was mostly deserted both times. We paddled at the water's edge, but weren't brave enough to swim - the water looks quite turbulent if you're not a strong swimmer. There are loads of sea birds to watch - oyster catchers running in and out with the waves, turkey vultures soaring up and down, cormorants and Peruvian boobies. It costs 10 soles per person to enter the nature reserve but it's well worth the price. There are great cafes close by for drinks, snacks or lunch.

Felt like a different time, enjoyed hiking into the solitude of this park. The immense emptiness is felt while walking without any houses in sight.

During our trip the water was too cold to swim in, but that didn't stop my spouse and I from visiting this beach twice during our week long Paracas stay. Soft sand to walk and play in with shells (if driving yourself, don't park too close or you'll get stuck). We enjoyed the seclusion of it and the sound of the waves crashing. Peace on Earth right here.

You will be stunned by the variety of colors here...the remoteness of being here by yourself cannot be beat. Lots of birds here too including Peruvian Boobies, Peruvian Vultures.
Best on a sunny day to bring out the colors.

I saw many locals were there. It is located in the park. It doesn't seem for tourists, but good for locals.

Camping and bringing pets are not allowed in the entire Paracas reserve, due to their policies that changed after the pandemic.

They refused us entry to Yumaque beach
Take your precautions before leaving Lima.
