Punta Sal is a lovely resort area located on Peru’s northern coast in the province of Tumbes. Punta Sal has two areas, the Big Punta Sal and the Small Punta Sal. The Small Punta Sal has a pure white sand beach, shaped like a long half moon, that is considered by many people to be the best out of the beaches in Peru. Punta Sal definitely has some of the most beautiful and dramatic sunsets that I have ever seen. The weather is fantastic, no matter what time of the year you visit. The water is always warm and the waves are gentle! It is a true paradise. This area attracts many surfers and divers as well as being the vacation destination of choice for important government officials, which is understandable once you view the beauty of Punta Sal.

On the northern coastline of Peru is a spectacular sandy beach named Punta Sal. The beach is graced with waves that gently roll onto the sand and balmy water that invites any visitor to swim, which can be enjoyed safely. In the afternoon the breeze picks up, and excellent surfing waves begin to hit the shore.

Guests are pretty much assured of a cloudless adventure when they visit this lovely tranquil beach in splendid Peru. The temperatures hover around 68 F or 20 C in the winter, and in the summer, the temperatures are around 86 F or 30 C.
