In northern Peru, near a small charming fishermen village called Chicama awaits the longest rideable left hand wave in the world. This is one of our favourite destinations in South America to provide great Mahalo Surf Experience.
Peru has a pretty magical background. Located in the epicentre of ancient cultures compared to Egypt and the Maya’s in the north of south America; connected 100% to their environment they built up one of the most amazing empires.
Welcome to the perfect located and beautifully integrated boutique hotel in the area to provide you with the most comfortable experience while you spend your days enjoying surf, massages, relaxation and Peruvian cuisine.
The boutique hotel Chicama Boutique Hotel & Spa in Puerto Malabrigo has the perfect location. Located at the beach right in front of the section of the Chicama wave.
You can relax at the hotel during the off-hours in the Jacuzzi or the infinite pool on the hotel´s terrace, where you can watch the waves after surfing and relax those surfed out muscles.
Chicama is famously the longest left hand point break in the world. The top of the point all the way to the beach in front of the resort is 4km. It’s rare for someone to ride the entire length of the wave but even riding a quarter of it will still likely be the longest wave of your life.
Any wave you catch in Chicama can provide leg-burning. It is always fun even on an average session the wave might offer you the longest wave you have ever been ridden with playful fast sections good to practice both floaters and nose riding. The wave also has slower sections where you can practice cutbacks and roundhouse cutbacks.
Suitable for all surf levels, from beginners and through to advanced and experienced surfers who want to ride long waves, and to be able to do various manoeuvres in one wave. There are three sections where you can get barreled but what really makes this wave unique is its length.
After a day of surfing you will get to try the famous South-American wine and ceviche.
Your full board will include, well, almost all of it. Besides the breakfast buffet you have a creative menu a la carte which you will be able to choose from every lunch and dinner.
There is plenty of things to do at Chicama. After three days of surfing you will be ready for a well earned break. So that day will be all yours to relax at the resort, get a massage, go free surfing or join the group for a trip to explore some of the spectacular archaeological sites such as El Brujo or Chan Chan and get to know more about the history of the northern part of Peru. Peru is rich in history, and you can definitely feel the strong energy that has pierced it through the ancient times. This is difficult to express in words, you must experience it for yourself.
including entertainment systems and mini-bars all hidden behind beautiful wooden walls. Given the outdoor and indoor bathrooms, private plunge pools and top-end beds and linens, you may never want to leave your room.
