Peru - Punta Sal - Beach Camp

Punta Sal and Máncora

For some beach time I camped on the white sandy shore of Punta Sal. I enjoyed swimming in the warm and tranquil waters, and spotting whales while boating in the Pacific Ocean. I also spent an afternoon in Máncora, a beach town on the Pan-American Highway. I definitely prefer northern Peru’s desert beaches to Lima’s grey and dreary coast.
