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.
