One of the best things in Huanchaco is the ocean. I could speak to you about it for hours, but I will let my pictures speak instead.
Let me just highlight a couple of things:
- This is a surfers’ paradise. National and international surf competitions are held here, such as the National Longboard Circuit on the coming Saturday (8 July) and the Longboard World Championship on 27-29 July. My surf instructor is taking part in the second.
- The sunsets are the highlights of many people’s days. But no doubt, watching the sun going down every day it’s like a meditation.
- You often encounter huge sea pelicans that come very close to the beach if the waves chase the fish towards the shore.
