walk along the coast in Miraflores

In the Miraflores district of Lima, Peru, there is a beautiful walk along cliffs over the Pacific Ocean called the Circuito de Playas.  It was overcast during my visit, but I could still appreciate the beauty of the views:

There are well marked paths along the cliffs, making it safe and easy to for a stroll or a jog:

There is even a lighthouse to mark one end of the road:

On the other end, you have more modern structures with an infinity fountain:
