According to the YouTube “THE **”, the Swedish website The Expressen was amazed when they encountered Peru’s red beach.
This is the only red beach in the world, according to the video and “you must visit because almost no one knows about it”, he narrated.
This beach is located in the Paracas National Reserve in Ica and it owes its color to the volcanic activity in the area. This region is one of the most uninhabited of Peru, which makes it ideal for resting and for many migrating animals.
“It is the perfect paradise”, the youtuber said, comparing this beach to a hidden treasure. The route that will take you to this beach is covered in salt since the desert used to be a sea.
To get to this place you need to take the main road of the Paracas National Reserve to Lagunillas with a special or authorized vehicle, departing from Paracas.
