Surfers come from around the world to board the waves of Peru, and Limaâ€™s coast is no different. For the beaches near Lima you will need a three-millimeter full wetsuit pretty much year round, but come Peruâ€™s summer months, January and February, you can just trunk it. Most folks ride their short boards all year long, so much so, that they vastly outnumber the long boards, even when the waves are small. The best beginners spots are in Miraflores, and include Makaha and other Costa Verde beaches. Experienced boarders should head south to the playas near Punta Hermosa and Cerro Azul.
