La costa Verde (the Green Coast) is the name given to the clifts and beaches from La Punta to the North and la Herradura to the South of the Bay of Lima.
Most people come to Peru thinking about the Andes and forget that the country has a large coast-line. Most of Lima is, in fact, made up of small sea-side towns that were incorporated to the metropolis as it grew (visit Miraflores, Barranco, Chorrillos, Magdalena del Mar, La Punta).
La Costa Verde is full of beaches for everyone in any group. There is excellent Surfing on the Miraflores part of the coast! Or just spend a few minutes or hours every day watching the sun set in the Pacific Ocean, behind the San Lorenzo Island.
Just head West on Salaverry, Larco, or Arequipa Avenues; or look at the map -you wont miss it: its the big Ocean to the left.
