Asia is Peru’s new luxury beach getaway, a real who’s-who of Lima. During the summer months, Lima’s most wealthy flock to the beach town for sunbathing, shopping and partying. If there’s one beach on the south coast that you must stop at, it would have to be Asia. Here’s how do it all in Asia, if only for one day.

Hit the beach

Begin the day by going to Asia‘s main beach. During the summer months there’ll be plenty of sun, the perfect weather for laying out and working on that tan. Morning hours are usually the best when there isn’t as much wind and the sun is usually out. In addition to laying out, you’ll also find plenty of action sports to entertain you and the family. You can ride 4x4s, go jet skiing or get pulled on an inner-tube with your friends. You’ll always find a few soccer matches or a game of volleyball on the beach as well.

Enjoy a spot of lunch

After hanging out on the beach all morning you’ll have built up an appetite. Though ceviche or jalea on the beach can be fun, for something different head to Asia Boulevard (Sur Plaza Boulevard) to eat at some of Peru’s best restaurants. Asia has become such a popular Peruvian destination that some of Peru’s best chefs have restaurants along the boulevard, cooking up Peru’s most interesting dishes. You may be a couple hours away from Lima, but you still have all of Lima’s best food options available to you.

Go shopping

Asia has itself become a shopping destination in Peru, almost outdoing Lima. You’ll find some of the world’s most popular international brands like Billabong next to Peru’s best boutique stores. You’ll also find the best of Peruvian shopping – from small designers to big brands – right next to international names you know and love. It’s also a great place to shop for your bathing suit or any summer clothing item you may be looking for.

Hit the town

Most people really come to Asia for the party. It has gained a reputation as one of Peru’s best destinations for partying, with exclusive clubs like Nikita. The places along Asia Boulevard draw in crowds between 20 to 50-year-olds in one of Peru’s most raucous party scenes. Also, make sure to dress your best – these aren’t tank top and board-short clubs – and enjoy the night.
