The southern desert coast south of Lima along the Pan-American Highway toward the border with Chile holds some distinctive attractions.
The most famous of these are the enigmatic Nazca Lines. The coastal Paracas Peninsula is one of the world's great marine bird reserves and was the site of one of Peru's most important ancient civilisations, while the Ballestas Islands are noted for their arches and caves.
