Punta Hermosa is located 42 km south of Lima's City center along the Panamericana Sur (Pan American Highway). It is well known for its beaches and attracts many beachgoers every summer. As a lot of them rent apartments there during this time, the beachfront is getting plastered with apartment blocks.
Anyhow so far Punta Hermosa still can preserve its traditional sea resort character. Along the main promenade you find hotels, restaurants and nightclubs, which are very busy during the summer month. Punta Hermosa is also a famous surfing spot with great waves.
