Surfing on the North Coast

Surfers hellbent on an endless summer flock to Peru’s north coast for the chance to catch some of the world’s longest and most consistent breaks. The coast’s surf scene culminates in rowdy Máncora, Peru’s only tried and true beach resort. Not to be confused with the world’s other famous North Shore, Máncora holds its own as far as South America is concerned, drawing surfers and sand worshippers alike to its crescent-shaped coast for year-round fun in the sun.
