Playa Ovahe, Hanga Roa

(800+ reviews on the web)
Beach Nature / Park
One of the island's only beaches, Playa Ovahe stands out with its soft sands and relative lack of visitors. Head for the secluded spot and kick back on the fine, almost pink-colored sands that blanket the area, surrounded by towering cliffs of black volcanic rock. Look carefully and you'll even be able to spot the caves that dot the cliffs, supposedly once home to some of the island's residents. Keep in mind that though the blue water looks inviting, swimming here can be dangerous due to unpredictable tides and rip currents.

  • Definitely a must see beach on easter island as there aren't many beach areas on the island. It's the typical south pacific beautiful that you'd hope for and expect. Not monitored so be careful.  more »
  • If you need to spend a day at a beach, this is it. It has full amenities. However, like all places on Easter Island, there are a set of Moai statues on a platform facing Awalt from the water.  more »
