Inspirock Rating:
4/5 based on 650+ 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.
