The best Peru Beach Resorts (Peruvian) are located in about five separate resort areas and also in the larger cities and across the more than 2000km of coastline.
While it is true that Peru is better known for Machu Picchu, the Incas capital, of Cusco, the Amazon and Lake Titicaca the beaches of Peru are also worth consideration for a resort vacation.
The beaches are stunning and incredibly diverse from one end to the other. In the tropical north of the country towards the Ecuadorian border their is a warm dry climate.
The southern part of the coastline is even dryer and the dessert conditions almost ensure a sun filled vacation or honeymoon. Surprisingly much of the Puruvian population is located in this area.
The climate on Peru coastline varies between the north and the south. As we mention below some areas to the south of Lima have some of the driest deserts in the world. Needless to say you don't have to worry too much about rain, but for what it's worth June is the wettest month. The winter is also a busy time for travel in Peru as many come this time of the year to avoid the rain and humidity in the mountains. Humidity on the cost remains at about 80 per cent year round.
In the northern coastline is perhaps the most romantic and exotic of the beaches. This is a little slice of paradise where the resorts are of an international standard offering up some of the whitest sand and calm waters.
There are also a lot of activities to get involved in around the water here including whale watching from June until October.

Miraflores is the urban beach area in the city of Lima known as Costa Verde and while it is not the most beautiful beach in Peru, or even in Lima it is the most well known because of the unique cliff-line that follows it. The beach has a lot of nice apartments which have great views looking out to the hundreds of para-sailors and surfers who populate the shoreline.
