The Asia District (Distrito de Asia) is one of 16 that make up the Peru province of Cañete. Founded by Beinto Chumpitaz Chavez on July 24, 1964, it was originally part of the Coayllo District. Asia's beaches overlook the Pacific Ocean making it a popular summer getaway for the residents of Lima, the Peruvian capital, which is an hour drive north.

Asia is bordered by Mala District to the north, Cerro Azul District and Quilmaná District to the south, and Coayllo District to the east. Its principal town is 97.5 kilometers south of Lima, approximately a two-hour drive.

Development of Asia's beaches began in the mid-1970s, with the creation of Las Palmas, the first condominium to be built on the beach. Kerosene lamps lit buildings, as electricity did not arrive until a second condo, Los Cocos, was developed. For many years, running water was not available, and water had to be trucked in.

By the 1990s, a reasonable level of housing development had been reached, but there were few businesses on the Camino Real, the road that connects Asia's beaches to the Panamerican Highway. Among the first businesses were a night club called Ibiza, the Sur Market, and a supermarket called Los Tres Chanchitos. Over the course of the decade, a movie theater and an E. Wong supermarket came to the city, along with many small shops and restaurants. Today's Asia has stores offering nearly all the products and services available in Lima.

The Camino Real is now home the open-air shopping mall Sur Plaza boulevard, which hosts stores, restaurants, and nightclubs. There are a movie theaters, children's playgrounds, Peruvian restaurants, and a number of bars and pubs. Along the Asia Beach there are hotels, resorts, and upscale homes.


Asia district now encompasses over 5,000 houses in over 30 developments. Nevertheless, the beach side of the district only works and is populated during the summertime, due to the weather, and the lack of urban conveniences.

The beaches are:

  • Playa Bonita
  • Sarapampa
  • Las Palmas
  • Totoritas
  • Los Cocos
  • León Dormido (for camping)
  • Las Campanas de Asia
  • Puerto Viejo
  • Puerto Nuevo
  • Lomas del Mar
  • Puerto Fiel
  • Honda


A pre-ceramic archaeological site is located near the mouth of the river of Omas´ quebrada. On the site, there are human remains of a small indigenous population with its respective cemetery. The excavations have revealed several rooms with deposits and passages whose walls have been done with great rectangular adobes. Archaeologists speculate that the site could date back to 1100 BC.


Recent projects that have been under development are those for the golf course and a condominium development. It is being sponsored by Inmobiliaria Playa del Golf a Real Estate company who has developed other condominiums in the area, such as Playa Blanca, Playa del Sol, Playa Bonita and Playa del Golf Stage I and Stage II. The area that is used as the golf course and contains pure sand which gives the perfect surface for building the golf course at a low cost, using Paspalum grass which is genetically designed for those conditions. The project kickoff date was June 1, 2007 and the course was finished in summer 2009.[1]
