While Huanchaco Beach may be an international surfing destination, it was once just a fishing village. Today, traditional reed fishing boats still line the shore — and as the sun rises in the sky, locals and visitors alike spill from the vibrant downtown onto the gold-sand shoreline. Despite the international acclaim, Huanchaco remains a quiet place with deep roots. Here, locals are happy to share their beach with surfers, swimmers and sun-worshipers alike. You may stop here while traveling through, but Huanchaco is arguably a charming destination all on its own.
