We recommend to take this tour in combination with the Tour to the Ballestas Islands.

The tour will start at around 11 am after the boat tour to the Ballestas Islands.

We will continue crossing the desert, following an unpaved road until we arrive at the 'cathedral viewpoint', an impressive rock formation created by the erosion of the wind. Here we will make a stop so we can take some pictures of the stunning view. Afterwards, we will visit different beaches like the La Mina, Playa Yumaque and Playa Roja. Finally, we reach the beautiful beach of Lagunillas where we can enjoy a good lunch and have a drink with view on the blue sea. After lunch, there will be free time and the possibility to go for a small swim in the sea. Around 3.30 pm we will be getting back to our car to drive back to the centre of Paracas.
