Playa Ovahe, Hanga Roa

(4.1/5 based on 800+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Surprisingly agreable beach, with many amenities. Some palm trees. And a beauty sundown. Near are Mohais.  more »
  • Access a bit difficult but well worth the detour. Small beach in a small Bay in the morning sun and shade the afternoon. Nice bathing sites.

  • These beach was a short hike in. You need a vehicle to get to it as it is not near to the town. We stopped here on our guided tour and spent a couple of hours.  more »
