About Boca del Rio

Close to Tacna, Boca del Rio is a small recreation town, offering some nightlife and a collection of beaches with well-formed peaks. There is a large choice of waves, from beach to reefbreaks, but don’t expect more than mostly short rides. From here starts a long and almost linear stretch of coast that extends to Arica, Chile, where the 2007 Rip Curl Pro WCT was held.

This is one big beach to the border so currents can sweep along the coast.
