Huacachina Oasis Town – Peru

Huacachina Peru

An oasis in the middle of the desert? Is it a mirage? Nope! It is the magical oasis town of Huacachina in Peru. Just 5km from the city of Ica lies a picturesque lagoon surrounded by the biggest sand dunes you might ever see. Legend has it that a young princess was bathing when she was discovered by a hunter and fled, leaving behind a pool of water. Her flowing cloak was said to have created the surrounding sand dunes! Interesting eh?
