We stopped at a couple of places in the reserve and this was the most disappointing. I was more impressed by the black beach near the Cathedral.

One of the reasons we went to Paracas was because of this beach. Well, the pictures that got us there must have been taken by a good photographer. Rather disappointing.

I really can not believe how lucky Peruvians are to have these wonders in their country. I will return with my family and I will recommend my friends to visit this place

This is famous for its red sand beach within the Paracas National Reserve. The red sand was produced by ancient volcanoes under the ocean. The best way to see this beach is from the cliff above. Well worth a visit.
