SURF SPOTS: LIMA REGION  

Punta Hermosa, just South of Lima is famous for being Peru's big wave location. This area of headlands, reefs and coves tends to focus the swell energy creating ideal surfing conditions. The largest wave's in South America can be found at Pico Alto. Wind conditions in Peru are often very light and this in turn creates glassy waves year round. Because most of the surf spots in Peru are reef point breaks, paddling out when it's big is not a problem. Water temperatures are comfortable. In the summer you can wear just baggies or a spring suit. In the winter either a spring or full suit depending on conditions.
