Islas de Ballestas (Ballestas Islands) are a group of islands just off the coast of Peru, near the town of Paracas. The islands are home to an amazing amount of wildlife, most notably the fur seals, sea lions, penguins and more sea birds than you can possibly imagine.
Take the morning boat tour out to the islands before returning to Paracas for the afternoon bus to Huacachina.
