The History

.The district of Punta Hermosa was founded on April 7, 1954, separating itself from the district of Lurín, by law No. 12095, during the government of President Manuel Odría2​ and the Crnl was mayor. Francisco de Sales Torres. Its limits were modified by law 24613. This district was one of the first resorts in the south of Lima, along with Punta Negra and San Bartolo. After the population crisis of the 1980s in the north of Lima, where the exclusive resorts of Ancón and Santa Rosa are located, several wealthy families decided to look for a better place for their beach houses and their summer establishment. And that is why they chose the southern area as Punta Hermosa, because it was a large area to industrialize, with better weather and air quality.


The town has all type of services like restorants, clubs, bars, hotels, markets, surf schools, surf camps
stores and medical center only to check with a Doctor (not hospitals, banks, money exchange, luxury hotels )
Restorant like Don Angelo has been recommend in La PLanicie Punta Hermosa. Cost per dish 50 soles aprox.
There are other restorants call Menu that are cheap 15 soles aprox ( go to the center market) Ask for Cecilia or most popular La Ceci. There are also intermediate restorants that cost 35 soles like Susan beside the sport coliseum.

Makkis 60 soles, Pollo Alabraza 20 soles , Pizza 60 soles, Burgers 20 soles open mostly at night time.
Cevicherias and sea food are most popular here.

ATM Are located in the Gas station 4 kilometers from Punta Hermosa town.
Surf lessons cost $40  or 120 soles aprox  same for SUP lessons.
There are a few martial art places like Jiu Jitsu and Muay Thai.
Private room can cost you about $40 per night
Surf trips cost about $200 per day from here to any where.

Renting apartament and houses are very popular for people from Lima.
Houses can cost from 5000 to 10 000 American Dollars for 3 months in summer time all depend where is located the house.

The geography looks like a desert here there is not green 



.1) Punta Hermosa has about 7 beaches El Silencio, Caballeros, Señoritas, Playa Norte, Playa Central, Playa Blanca, Kontiki.
No all of them let you get in with car (Private or something like that)

2) Cars has been towing and pay ticket for $300 to $400 aprox for parking in areas that are not permit.

3) Restorants and other business are not English speakers and not English written also.

4) Surf school are not in English only My Surf camp Peru and another call Bagus.

5) Surf Camp in English My Surf Camp Peru and Bravo Surf Camp 

6) Club are not into town so you need to walk 1 to 4 km to find the clubs or take a taxi that cost 10 to 15 soles aprox.

7) If you can here for sun this place only sun shines from December to March also there are days on that time that are cloudy.

8) If you are looking for sandy beaches that are flat ( do not has deep water on the short) this not the beach you are looking for most of the are deep on the short  with mean not good for kids)

9) Surf spots are mostly with good waves ( for advance or intemediate I would say)

10) Surf spots mostly are rocky point breacks not for beginners at all but with good experience teachers you always can learn here.

11) Saturdays and Sundays the beaches are full of people also on the waves. Try to not come on those days 

12) Punta Hermosa do not permit camping at the beach same for futbol, volley, dogs walking and bringing glass bottles, meals, radios with noise volum or alcohol.

13) If you rent a apartment you are not allowed to make noise up to 10:00 Pm so not parties with hight volum.

14) Waves are big from May to September no really good idea to learn to surf here at that time.

15) either way there is no sun from May To September and the water is cold at time of year 

16) There are guards every where and gates to not allow to enter cars in every beach. They will only open the gates if you have a stiker that permit you enter. Every beach has a stiker with a different color.

Get to know or ask some information about surf camps in Peru. Many people in the world are using this name for only surf lessons or surf schools but a surf camp is a place that offer all tipes services for all surf levels.

Rather you are a Pro surfer looking to have a pipe waves on your life or just are beginner seeking to surf lessons, the surf camp or surf trips through all peru´s waves.

The surf camp is a perfect idea for you.


We feel sorry for the lodgings, hostels in Peru that use the name of surf camps for having one board to rent when the name of surf camp fills all kinds of services that a surfer can need like surf trips, Surf courses, Coach surfing train, Surf equipment rentals, tranfers, diets,  surf pictures, surf videos, surf information and beyond that is our surf camps idea.

Located in different location in Peru for many reason:


1) Waves potential  Chicama, Punta Hermosa, Bermejo

2) Near access to big cities in 1 hour ride Chicama, Punta Hermosa

3) Airports access to make easy to conect with all over Peru with a flitht

4) Only Surf Camp that offer traditional tent services in Peru at Bermejo beach.

5) Punta Hermosa to be the area of the bigest wave in Peru and also for the variety of waves.

6) Chicama named at longest left wave in the word and perfection shape on the waves for all kind of levels.

Why to choose a surf camp and not a surf trip?


1) Cheaper than surf trips that cost double or triple a surf camp could be a good option to save money and get to know other country.


2) Get to know more the waves as you  have more chances " more time to spend on the same wave  to get the waves in better condition than having a surfari around Peru".
