Makaja is a small curved beach in Miraflores with good waves, but it is not just the waves that attract the surfers, who also go to Roquitas and La Pampilla beaches.It is rather that the beaches from Costa Verde, where these beaches are found, have an unbeatable view of Lima and their closeness to the city makes them perfect for surfing, so that if what you really want to do is go swimming, it is advisable to get away from the center of the city and head for the beaches in the south.
