peaceful and quiet beach near Pedasi, Panama
Huacachina is built around a small natural lake in the desert. Called the "Oasis of America," it serves as a resort for local families from the nearby city of Ica, and increasingly as an attraction for tourists drawn by the sports of sandboarding and taking dune buggy rides on sand dunes that stretch several hundred feet high.
Playa Roja is one of the most beautiful beaches in the Paracas National Reserve due to its reddish colour shore. This characteristic, most unusual along the Peruvian coast, confers this beach a quite unique beauty. The red colour of the sand is caused by the nearby massif of Punta Santa Maria, formed by a sort of igneous rock known as pink granodiorite, which contains solidified magma inside. When breaking against the cliffs of Punta Santa Maria, the waves carry fragments of the reddish rocks that then settle on the shore, in beautiful contrast with the yellow and ocher colours of the cliffs.
