 Access

From Talara city take the way to the south, towards Negritos town (Balcones). After a few kilometres you will see the beach from the top of the "hill", once you've gotten the bottom just cross the first small bridge and turn right toward the beach, you will find the access. Take a 4*4 if you can.

 Additional Information

If you got a 4*4 you can park your car in front of the spot. If you have a non 4*4 you can par just behing the sand dunes, but watch out for thiefs.
Best as early as it's possible but if you are thinking to camp here, forget it...this part of the coast is hunted! No jokes
One problem on this beach is pollution, after a few hours dealing with the powerfull sun and the water (usually with an oil skin on it!) your eyes will find hard to keep dealing with, just paddle in and wash your face
As well as the rest of the north coast of Peru, on small days may be full of stingrays, so take your precautions and enjoy it!

Atmosphere

Northern Peru is amazing. It’s full of really good spots. It’s an oasis paradise in the middle of the desert, with a lot of fauna and flora diversity. You'll enjoy it a lot. All the waves are perfect, fast, fun .. and you don’t have to travel too much... There is no much crowd and plenty of waves

General

This spot is one of the best spots, locals looks at it as our "Puerto Escondido". Probably it does not handle to much surf (max 3mts) as its "original", but its quality will just get ya!

I've done it. - I've moved back to the coast - I'm pretty broke, the wife is preganant - BUT I'M HAPPY - and my kid is going to be a surfer!

Shouldawouldacoulda - Dude, get out of your situation. Fuck Corporate Life. There is no reason to slave for the man. Live life, even if it means not having money. Look at the locals, see them pissed, depressed....no. Money stinks, the city stinks.

Perfect - Picture 1 looks like the waves that I used to draw on my school books. Hell, it looks like the waves I still draw on the god-awful work printouts that I look at all day, locked in my corporate cage, as I slowly turn into a sad, old, grey, unfulfilled little man....
