Chancay in Lima is a sheltered point break that has fairly consistent surf and can work at any time of the year. Offshore winds blow from the east southeast. Most of the surf here comes from groundswells and the ideal swell angle is from the southwest. Both left and right reef breaks. The quality of the surf isn't affected by the tide. Even when there are waves, it's not likley to be crowded. Beware of urchins and rocks, thefts.
