At first, the long narrow desert strip that constitutes the Peruvian coast might strike the untrained eye as an inhospitable, harsh and forgotten destination where days seem to follow each other with stubborn inertia. Yet, despite this beguiling surliness, truth is that nothing can be as far removed from reality as these misconceptions. As in fact, the Peruvian coast boasts a great variety of unspoilt beaches, an extremely rich diversity of marine fauna, an inspiring past and living culture, and an amazing cuisine; all contained within the joyous, hospitable and contagious laid-back character of its inhabitants.
It is amongst these many hidden secrets that we come across Los Organos Beach, a small low-key gem of a destination, located on the northern border of Piura, and just a 15 minute drive away from popular surfing hub, Mancora Beach. Easy to reach, (from Lima a 1h45min flight to Tumbes plus a 1.5h drive, or an 18hrs overnight bus ride), here those who dare to break the lines of mainstream tourism and abandon themselves to the subtle rewards of experiencing a location from its core, will find out that no matter how long they stay, coming back for seconds is the norm.
