Playa Ovahe, Hanga Roa
(4/5 based on 700+ 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.

  • Very nice beach, away from everything, private, you felt that was just for us. The warm water and moderate swell

  • This beach tends to be forgotten by tourists and local, by which you can have more privacy here that in Anakena. It has palm trees, but it has its own charm. We recommend going during the morning that during the afternoon the Sun hides behind the stone wall that is behind.

  • A different place where checks that the traditions rapa nui are alive. A beautiful landscape. It is a protected small beach and close to the main.
