Access: Bayóvar lies 105 km (two hours) southwest of the city of Piura. To get to the beach, visitors need to take the detour at Kilometer 886 of the North Pan-American Highway that runs to the port of Bayóvar and then heads down along the coast.

The wave that breaks at Bayóvar-Nonura, located in the department of Piura, is a classic wave, running long and leftwise, reaching a height of up to 3 meters. Surfers say it resembles a train for its size and force. Access to the point involves a tough paddle out against strong currents. The beach has swells generally during summer.
If willing to practice surfing in Peru you should follow these recommendations:
- Never surf alone.
- Keep beaches clean by taking your refuse with you, and do not disturb the marine wildlife that shares the sea with the visitors (dolphins, sea lions and seagulls).
- Check for the presence of undertowns as well as reefs and rocks on the sea bottom.
- In addition, remember that, depending on the area, in March or April (around Easter Week), tides tend to rise and the waves swell, increasing the risk.
