Chiclayo Travel Guide

Sports and the Outdoors

Pimentel. The closest beach to Chiclayo is this small port town, 14 km (8½ miles) west of the city. Access via taxi should cost about S/25 each way or bus fare is just a few soles. Although the beach is not so attractive and the century old curved pier is now closed to the public, there are many other enjoyable sights along the beach, including a small fleet of caballitos de totora and a lively boardwalk lined with restaurants. Walk along and observe the old colonial beach houses, the naval officers in white outside the maritime station, and an excessive number of young Peruvian couples walking hand in hand. Amenities : food and drink. Best for : swimming, surfing, sunset. Malecón Seoane, Pimentel.
