Peñascal in Lima is an exposed point break that has pretty consitent surf. Autumn and winter are the optimum times of year for waves. Works best in offshore winds from the north. Groundswells more frequent than windswells and the ideal swell angle is from the southwest. Best around low tide. Even when there are waves, it's not likley to be crowded. Beware of rips and rocks.
