Huarmey is a small beach town located on the Ancash shore. The town itself is quiet and nondescript, but the beach is spectacular. You'l find crystalline water, sea-swept rock formations, and a deeply peaceful atmosphere. Huarmey is also a popular regional surf spot, and it is renowned for its excellent waves. There are several small hostels and lodges in town, but you can also just camp out on the beach.
