The Ballestas Islands are located roughly 15km off the coast of southern Peru. These islands are home to various fauna like the guanay guano bird, the blue-footed booby, the tendril, the Humboldt Penguin and two varieties of seals (fur seals and sea lions). They can be reached by the small sea side town of Paracas. Paracas is also the name of a nature reserve further south on the coast.
