Cabo Blanco

Climate: Subtropical, warm and sunny all year-round. Temperatures range from 24°C-28°C.

Access: Cabo Blanco lies 153 km north of the city of Piura. To get to Cabo Blanco, surfers need to take the winding paved road that runs from the town of El Alto, located at Kilometer 1,137 of the North Pan-American Highway. Apt for all kind of vehicles.

Services: Cabo Blanco is a fishing cove that has lodgings and restaurants.

Located in the department of Piura, Cabo Blanco is widely held to feature the best left-breaking wave in Peru. A rapid and short wave (which makes a quick take-off obligatory) and one of the best tubes in the country. The wave can reach a height of 4 meters, although normally it ranges from 2-3 meters. The best time for surfing is from November to December. It is also a dangerous wave as it breaks over a reef, which becomes more exposed when swells wash away the sand. Wave frequency depends directly on swells coming from the north (generated in the North Pole and which pass through Hawaii).

Bayovar Nonura

Climate: Subtropical, warm and sunny all year-round. Temperatures range from 24°C-28°C.

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. Apt only for four-wheel drive vehicles.

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 planning to practice surfing in Piura, 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.
