Playa Roja, Paracas

4.2
#2 of 9 in Beaches in Ica Region
Admire the dramatic contrast of colors on display at Playa Roja, a beach with deep reddish-hued sand, azure waters, and yellow and ochre cliffs. The sand gets its fiery hue from a type of igneous rock known as pink granodiorite, which contains solidified magma. The best and most convenient way of seeing this beach is with an organized tour, as the surrounding national park is too large to explore without guidance and proper vehicles.
