The coast of the province harbors some of the most beautiful beaches in Peru. Although similar to those in northern Piura Region, the beaches of the Contralmirante Villar Province are considerably less crowded and urbanized.
The beaches in the town of Punta Sal are considered as some of the finest on the Peruvian coast due to their pure white sands, sun and warm weather all year long, and a sea ideal for water sports.
The Contralmirante Villar Province is divided into three districts (Spanish: distritos, singular: distrito), each of which is headed by a mayor (alcalde). The districts, with their capitals in parenthesis, are:
